LEADERS from across the political spectrum in North East Lincolnshire united to pay tribute to our emergency services personnel today.
On what is National Emergency Services Day, Council leader Cllr Philip Jackson was joined by Labour Group Leader Cllr Matthew Patrick and Liberal Democrat leader Cllr Steve Beasant to raise the Emergency Services flag at Grimsby Town Hall.
The Worshipful the Mayor of the borough of North East Lincolnshire, Councillor David Hasthorpe, was also in attendance, along with representatives from North East Lincolnshire Council, Humberside Police, Humberside Fire and Rescue Service and the National Health Service.
The flag raising was an opportunity to recognise the dedication and work of all our emergency services over what has been one of the most challenging periods in recent history with frontline teams coping with the COVID pandemic and its aftermath.
Mayor Cllr David Hasthorpe was delighted to be there, saying: “It is wonderful to recognise the outstanding work of the emergency services – particularly after all that has happened over this past year. I am incredibly proud of the NHS and all of our emergency service workers and of what they have achieved, saving lives every day.”
