OLDER Oakes residents are to recall their VJ Day memories at a get- together.
Members of Oakes Baptists Over-60s Group have invited other local people to join them for the event at the church on Wednesday.
Organiser Margaret Rose said members would be eating the same kind of food served up at street parties about 60 years ago - such as dripping sandwiches and Spam.
The event, which begins with a formal meeting and prayers at 1.45pm, will also include musical entertainment and a balloon release.
Mrs Rose said: "Everyone is welcome.
"We would appreciate contributions for the picnic lunch - although we have definitely got enough dripping sandwiches!"
