Across the country, there has been so much support for key workers who are supporting and responding to the Coronavirus pandemic.
From NHS workers, waste and recycling collectors through to care home workers and school staff that are providing emergency childcare to enable key workers to continue to work, there are many key workers that we know are providing essential services here in Knowsley to support our residents and businesses as well as respond to the current pandemic.
Every Thursday, our roadside illuminated signs across the borough display the message “Thank you to NHS and key workers” to support the national “Clap for Carers” day and the road adjacent to Whiston Hospital has recently had road markings installed thanking the NHS.
From today, a number of roadside signs are being installed around key road networks across Knowsley thanking key workers and carers for the work they are doing during these challenging times.
Cllr Tony Brennan, Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Economic Development, said “We are receiving so many positive comments from our residents and businesses around the support they are receiving and we felt that it was appropriate to share this appreciation as widely as we can.”
“We have a number of roadside signs being installed from today thanking key workers so that they will hopefully see these as they travel to and from work and know that the work they are doing is valued and appreciated.”
“I’d like to add my own thanks too – you are doing an amazing job and keep up the good work.”
