Geddington residents were woken at 6am today, to the sound of bagpipes being played at the Cross.

It celebrated 75 years since the United Kingdom woke up to peace on 15 August, 1945; known ever since as VJ (Victory in Japan) Day.

The piece played was ‘When the Battle is O’er’, a traditional Highland air and will be played at significant locations around the world.
