People across Huntingdonshire came into their front gardens to celebrate VE Day.
In Fenstanton, the Huntingdonshire Amateur Radio Society were busy communicating with the world.
Mervin Foster, chairman of the group, said: “I communicate with Morse Code around the world and on VE day I was talking to Switzerland, Sweden, Greece, Germany, France, Belgium and a couple in the UK.
“Amateur radio is about keeping in contact, we have 90 members in the society, since the pandemic began we have a radio net to keep in contact with everybody.
“If there is someone who needs help, we can contact them. It is a great way for people to feel less isolated.”
