Residents urged to remember those lost and thank those on pandemic frontline this weekend

Leamington Editorial 3rd Jul, 2020   0

RESIDENTS are being encouraged to ‘pause for applause’ this weekend to reflect, remember and say thank you to all those in Warwick district who have been affected by or have played a role during the pandemic.

Warwick District Council (WDC) is hoping the community will join the newly founded Together coalition in a national ‘coming together’ to mark the 72nd anniversary of the NHS and pay tribute to NHS staff and all key workers and good neighbours who have helped during the crisis.

As well as taking part in the national applause at 5pm on Sunday, WDC chairman Martyn Ashford is inviting people to share their thankyou photos and messages via social media and to put a light in their windows on Saturday evening in remembrance of those who have lost their lives.

Coun Ashford said: “We would very much like everybody, in whatever way they can to pause, reflect and join with others to say thank you, to everyone in our district who been on the frontline, a key worker, has volunteered or helped to keep our services and community networks going during these challenging times.”
