Using one tonne bags of Orwell Fertiliser, which is bagged at the Port of Ipswich, a group of ABP colleagues decided to make their own tribute to VE Day on Friday 8 May. The photograph shows these proud colleagues outside of the port’s Coldock Terminal with the VE Day display.
Andrew Harston, ABP Regional Director for Wales and Short Sea Ports, said: “I am so proud of our colleagues who have worked to keep our ports open throughout the Coronavirus crisis and who have done a fantastic job. It is great when we can come together like this to celebrate in our own way an important and memorable anniversary that is not going to be the nationwide celebration that the country had planned.
“It would be great to share this picture in the media so that others can see the VE Day tribute that our colleagues have created. We are at the heart of the community in Ipswich, being located near to the town centre, and it would be fantastic to share this image on VE Day with the people of Ipswich.”
