A celebration of the day that marked the end of World War Two has been postponed due to the coronavirus.
Exmouth Raleigh Rotary Club announced there will be a VE Day celebration night held on Thursday, August 13, to belatedly mark the anniversary.
The Rotarians had planned two music events over the course of the rearranged May Bank Holiday to celebrate VE Day.
However, due to coronavirus, those events had to be cancelled.
As part of the August event, AJ’s Big Band will be performing at Exmouth Pavilion.
