Local people are being encouraged to shine a light from their windows in recognition of the role that nurses and other frontline staff in Warwick district have played during the coronavirus pandemic.
Tuesday 12 May marks International Day of the Nurse and the 200th birthday of the Lady of the Lamp, Florence Nightingale. Warwick District Council is hoping that residents and businesses will light up their homes and front windows at 8.30pm this evening to pay tribute to NHS frontline staff and also those working in care homes and other settings.
Warwick District Council’s Portfolio Holder for Culture, Councillor Moira-Ann Grainger commented;
“I very much hope that throughout Warwick, Leamington, Kenilworth and Whitnash and all the villages we will see a glow of light this evening, as we say a big thank you to the nurses and others working in the caring profession across our district for their dedication, love and kindness in the most challenging of times.”
