Flags fly in gratitude to NHS and key workers

Posted onPosted on 27th Apr

‘Thank you NHS’ is the message being posted from on high at two Newark and Sherwood District Council sites.

Flags with the iconic blue and white logo, representing the gratitude of communities throughout the district, are flying both outside Castle House on Great North Road and at the council depot on Brunel Drive in Newark.

They serve as a recognition to the selfless spirit and dedication shown by NHS and key workers during the ongoing Covid-19 crisis.

Council Leader David Lloyd said residents across the district were in awe and admiration for the work being carried out on the frontline in the battle against Coronavirus.

Coun Lloyd said: “These flags have been raised in tribute to the amazing work of our fabulous NHS and its fantastic staff who have certainly put service above self.

“We are also grateful to those who work in the care sector, emergency services and all those key workers, including Council colleagues, who have risen to the challenge and played their part in the response to this terrible disease. We can all show our gratitude for their efforts by staying at home, protecting the NHS and helping to save lives.”

Newark Castle, which is managed by the council, is being illuminated in blue each Thursday night in tribute to the NHS and all key workers.
