The Rev Dr Alan McCann, rector of Holy Trinity Woodburn, helped bring history alive for local children when he staged a VE Day 75th anniversary display outside the rectory.
Alan exhibited a child’s gas mask used by his late father when he was a baby, and a larger gas mask which belonged to his grandmother.
Among the other memorabilia was a home guard medal.
“I left these out all day and children in the street took it in turns to come down with their parents and learn a little history,” Alan said.
Across Connor Diocese, many virtual services were held and bells rang out to ensure the 75th anniversary of this milestone in history did not pass unmarked.
