Deputy Mayor Cllr Tom Astell says the installation of signs around Beverley thanking key workers is a small but powerful gesture.
Beverley’s Deputy Mayor comments after Beverley Town Council announced they will be installing 20 signs around the town.
Speaking to HU17.net Cllr Astell said;
“The idea of installing the signs was floated at the recent policy meeting. I first thought of it after seeing how colleagues in North Newbald had done something similar.”
“That got me thinking and felt they would look perfect on our town entry signs. In all, we have had 20 banners made. These will go on the entry signs and also at other highly visible locations in Beverley.”
Locations for the new signs include Beverley Minster, the Jubilee Gardens and on the Town Councils information boards.
Cllr Astell added;
“The signs are ar small but powerful message to all the key workers that express the gratitude of the people in Beverley for what they are doing.”
“We hope that when they go to work and return home they see them and know residents are thanking them for what they are doing.”
Mayor Welcomes Gesture Aimed At Beverley’s Essential Workforce
Mayor of Beverley Cllr Duncan Jack welcomed the gesture. He said;
“This was a great idea to come from Cllr Astell and one I fully support. It is a small gesture to all those people who are doing an important job in these testing times.”
“It’s about our fantastic front line NHS workers, our care home staff, our postmen and women, those that empty our bins.”
“Also the shopworkers who have kept us supplied with our essential supplies in the supermarkets and independent food shops.”
“The teachers who have been looking after the children of key workers, the NHS Health responders who have given so selflessly.”
“Everyone in fact, who has done so much to ensure we are well and safe, and keep our community going.”
“When the history books come to be written, this time in 2020 will be seen as a moment in Beverley when the human spirit prevailed, and love triumphed over adversity.”
“By doing this it is a way we can show an appreciation to them.”
