Community’s Efforts in Battling Covid-19 to be Recognised

Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Councillors have pledged to officially recognise the community’s fight against the Covid-19 Pandemic.

As a “Thank you’’ gesture, banners have now been placed next to the borough’s official Christmas trees in Nuneaton, Bedworth and Bulkington with the message saying:

Thanks to All! • Key workers • Local residents • Volunteers • Local businesses - A huge thank you for all your efforts to defeat Covid-19. Here’s to a Brighter 2021.

Councillors of all parties have met and have discussed what the council can do to recognise and publicly acknowledge the tremendous support and dedication of the community, individuals, organisations, key workers in the fight against COVID-19.

In the New Year, the Borough Council will be marking the efforts and commitment of the community, residents, businesses and key workers in tackling COVID 19.

This will include the tremendous amount of work that has been carried out in supporting vulnerable people across the Borough.

All members are supportive of arranging different events and activities throughout 2021 which will recognise the work of individuals and organisations.

The events will take place when it is safe to do so or when it can be done with socially distancing measures in place.

Cllr June Tandy, Mayor of Nuneaton and Bedworth said:

“We realise what a great effort has been put into fighting this pandemic by all areas of our community.

“And we also believe it is important that this dedication and sacrifice made by so many people and organisations is officially recognised.

“To that end, several events will hopefully be taking place over the coming months across our borough to mark our thanks to our community.’’
