Thank you key workers

People have been finding all kinds of ways to say ‘thank you’ to frontline workers during the past few weeks.

And today, Wrexham is finding another way to pay tribute to these amazing people…

Messages saying ‘Thank you NHS’ – along with a heart-shaped rainbow flag – are being painted onto the surfaces of Watery Road and Croesnewydd Road, close to the Maelor Hospital.

And a message saying ‘Thank you’ – aimed at every key worker on the frontline – is being painted on the surface of Mold Road, which is one of the key roads in and out of the town centre.

“Courage and kindness”

In a joint statement, Leader of the Council Mark Pritchard, and Deputy Leader David A Bithell, say the road markings are another small way of paying tribute to people who are going above and beyond during the Covid-19 emergency…

“This is an incredibly difficult time for everyone, but seeing the messages of support for key workers from people across Wrexham is really inspiring.

“It makes you realise how proud we are – as a county borough – of key workers. They’re making a massive difference to all of our lives…helping to keep us safe, and providing us with the things we need.

“Their courage and kindness has made us all feel humble…and although saying ‘thank you’ seems like a small thing, it’s something we can do to let these people know how much we appreciate them.

“What they’re doing is amazing, and these road markings are just another small way of saying ‘thank you’ – on behalf of both the council, and Wrexham as a whole.”

The cost of painting the messages onto the road surfaces has been kindly met by our contractors L&R Roadlines and Amberon, and we’d like to thank them for this kind gesture.
