The Big Thank You in Newport Pagnell

,

NEWPORT Pagnell celebrated the tireless work of 300 people with a Big Thank You event.

Staff from care homes, sheltered housing and the Brooklands Centre which provides community services for older people, as well as workers from the town’s two NHS medical centres and three dental practices were invited. Police, fire, and ambulance staff and volunteer Community First Responders and volunteers from St John, Red Cross, Eclipse Addiction and the Winter Night Shelter were among those on the guest list.

The event was held at St Peter and St Paul’s Church. The Rector, Nick Evans, said: “We wanted a way to show our appreciation and give thanks to all that these local services do for us in our town. Many of these unsung heroes go about their daily business with little or no thanks and we want to address that to highlight their endeavours for us as individuals and the community as a whole.”
