NHS Frontline Services Day

Date: 5th Jul 2021
This was an All Day Event

The first NHS, Social Care and Frontline Workers’ Day will take place on Monday, July 5th 2021. This is a day when we show our gratitude to doctors, nurses, paramedics, and critical workers including those who keep our shops open and stocked, our streets safe and our essential services running.

We have treasured the NHS ever since it was founded in 1948, but never more so than since March 2020 when the Coronavirus pandemic gripped the UK and changed all our lives. The 5th July is an opportunity show our gratitude to all NHS and front line staff with an annual day of thanks, and remembrance of those who lost their lives because of this dreadful disease.

10am – Flag Raising ceremony
This will be led by Councillor Brian Ellis. We encourage you to look out for photographs on our social media channels.

11am – Two Minutes Silence and Playing of Last Post
Led by Councillor Brian Ellis together with local representatives from frontline services. Please observe this time to reflect from wherever you are; photos and updates will be posted on our social media channels.

1pm – Nation’s toast led by The Town Mayor, Paul Cousin
A virtual toast by the mayor will be shared on Facebook.

8pm – Clapping for our heroes and ringing of the church bells 73 times for every year of the NHS.
We would like to encourage you to clap on your doorstep, remembering our NHS and Frontline worker heroes.

In addition to the above Harpenden Town Council will be posting on social media throughout the day, focusing on some of Harpenden’s frontline workers from our Vaccination Centre, Doctors Surgeries, Ambulance workers, Doctors, Nurses, local policing team and other front line workers.
