Council buildings raise flags to honour NHS and key workers
The council house and town halls in Dudley and Stourbridge will fly a special flag in tribute to NHS and key workers.
From this Thursday (April 30) the flags will be raised for the ‘Clap for Carers’ initiative and will remain flying until further notice.
Borough residents are encouraged to help key workers to continue delivering essential services by sticking to government guidelines on social distancing and staying at home.
Councillor Ian Kettle, cabinet member responsible for halls, said:
I am proud that the council is honouring all frontline staff by flying the flags on our landmark buildings.
I encourage residents to continue to show how much we all appreciate their dedication by joining in the weekly clap for carers and key workers on Thursdays at 8pm.
We need to continue to protect our key workers by following government advice on the best way to protect the NHS and save lives.
