NHS Frontline Day
NHS flower bed at Didcot Civic Hall
On Monday 5th July 2021, we hosted the NHS Frontline Day at Didcot Civic Hall to celebrate and thank the work of NHS and key workers across the UK.
Since January, the vaccination programme has been held at Didcot Civic Hall, and this day was a way to say thank you to all the NHS staff and volunteers that have been a part of the programme.
Planting of the Rainbow Tree
On the day, Mayor Mocky Khan raised the NHS Frontline Day flag and gave a speech, then planted the Rainbow Tree in the NHS flower bed at Didcot Civic Hall.
The flower bed has been designed and developed by one of the NHS Volunteer team and each flower and plant within has a significant meaning, for example, the 'Captain Tom Rose'.
A short prayer was given by Reverend Andy Lord followed by a 2-minute silence at 11 am.
Tesco Community Champions kindly provided refreshments for the day
