A SECOND special pair of road markings thanking NHS heroes for all of the hard work they have done have been painted – this time outside Orsett Hospital.
The special display with road markings in School Lane and another in Rowley Road in Orsett, follows a similar one on the road outside Thurrock Hospital in Long Lane, Grays.
One of the NHS heroines Katie Hayden posted the above image on Facebook, showing the her and two of her proud colleagues standing over the display, along with following message: “This gesture outside Orsett Hospital put a smile on our faces.”
Leader of Thurrock Council, Cllr Rob Gledhill, said:
“We have all seen the fantastic rainbows in resident’s windows thanking the NHS for all they are doing at this time and we wanted to celebrate the extraordinary contribution being made by our NHS workers on a daily basis.
“It seemed fitting to paint a huge thank-you message in the road on the approaches to Thurrock Hospital and in Orsett. Now all staff will get a daily reminder of just how much Thurrock and the entire nation appreciates everything they are doing.
“Additionally our vehicles across the borough will be displaying signs thanking the NHS, volunteers and front line staff who working so hard in tackling this virus and keeping the borough and country running. We wanted a daily reminder of how grateful we are of the hard work, dedication and sacrifice of those working so hard to help us all.
“I would like to thank our contractor Henderson and Taylor who donated the labour and materials for these colourful road markings for free to show how much we all appreciate our NHS heroes.”
