1pm – Nation’s Toast to the Heroes of the NHS, Social Care & Frontline Workers – The  Mayor Mark Jepson and Deputy Mayor Sharon Harkin toast:
“To those who give so much, 24 hours a day, seven days a week within the NHS, social care and on the front line, we thank and salute you.”


8pm – Clapping & the Ringing of Church Bells   –   St Johns Church will be ringing their bells 73 times – one ring for every year of our NHS – and everyone is encouraged to applaud our NHS and key workers once again.
