Staff from areas including public open space and waste management were invited to the unveiling of a plaque by the Norfolk Lieutenancy, to commemorate our community’s resilience during the pandemic.
Mr David Goddard, a Deputy Lieutenant for Norfolk, visited King’s Lynn Town Hall on Tuesday 1 March to present the plaque which recognises the borough council for its resilience and special service to the west Norfolk community during the last couple of years.
Mr David Goddard, a Deputy Lieutenant of Norfolk, said: “This plaque recognises the fine work carried out in the community and shows what can be achieved when we all work together. The plaque is a reminder and thank you to all in the area who have given so much for the benefit of others. I’m pleased that representatives from the borough council can be here today.” These special commemorative plaques were commissioned by the Lord-Lieutenant and funded by generous sponsorship from several Norfolk based charities and organisations.
Cllr Harry Humphrey, Mayor of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk, said: “I’m very proud of the community in King’s Lynn & West Norfolk and to see the work of the borough council recognised today. As well as our staff we had the many volunteers, including neighbours, who were looking out for others during the pandemic. Parish councils did an amazing job of supporting people through this too. If there is one good outcome from this whole situation it is that it has brought people together to support and help each other.”
The plaque is proudly displayed outside the front door of the Town Hall.
