The lockdown was a very difficult period for many in our borough. We were all amazed by those who volunteered to help our community or who bravely kept working through the depths of the COVID-19 crisis.
It was not only the dedicated people working in the NHS or social care, it was also those working in local food shops and supermarkets, on public transport, for utility companies, those delivering the packages we all relied on or those working in essential supply chains to name but a few. And of course our police and fire services were there for us at all times, as well as our armed forces who performed essential work for the healthcare system.
Our Community Heroes initiative is now closed to new nominations. Thank you to all those who nominated, certificates will be distributed in January 2021.
