I was there to welcome Lewes D-Day veteran Cyril Tasker and his wife Jeanne as guests of honour on Saturday night, May 2, at the Lewes Town Hall Buffet-Dance celebrating Victory in Europe 70 years ago in May 1945.

The pair were entertained by the 17-strong “Sounds of Swing Big Band” performing live alongside the duet “Swingtime Sweethearts”.

A fabulous “all you can eat buffet” put together by Chris Collison ensured a great evening with lashings of Glenn Miller-style music plus a big dash of nostalgia thrown in for good measure.

It was just one big party!
