Wakefield Council paints its thanks to NHS workers
Council has painted ‘thank you NHS’ rainbow road markings outside the
district’s hospitals to applaud the outstanding work of the NHS and all other
key workers during the coronavirus outbreak.
markings welcome NHS workers at Bar Lane roundabout and Aberford Road outside
Pinderfields Hospital and more will be painted on Friarwood Lane at Pontefract
Hospital next week, in a hope to brighten up their day to and from work.
Cllr Matthew Morley,
Wakefield Council’s Cabinet Member for Planning and Highways, said: “I hope
this small gesture puts a smile on the face of NHS staff who work at both
hospitals and in acknowledgement of all other key workers across the district.
“It is a token
of our appreciation for all of their incredible work and sacrifice. When the
rest of us are being told to stay at home, they are being asked to work on the
frontline to keep us all safe and keep services running.
“Please help to
support our NHS by staying at home and saving lives.”
