Council’s street care team shows support for NHS workers


Cheshire West and Chester Council’s grass cutting teams have developed a unique way of showing their support for all NHS and key workers during the coronavirus pandemic.

They have creatively cut large NHS logos in the grass on some of the borough’s large open spaces.

The council’s deputy leader, Cllr Karen Shore said: “This is a difficult and challenging time for us and I’m delighted our teams have been able to show their appreciation for the NHS and key workers in this way.

“As we applaud the NHS and key workers each Thursday evening, it’s lovely that our teams have developed their own unique way of saying thank you.”

StreetCare officer, Gary Holden, who originally came up with the idea, said: “It wasn’t difficult to do and I thought it was perfect to show all our appreciation in big way.

“I’ve received some really lovely comments from residents.”
