Wrexham’s Unsung Heroes During Coronavirus

Many of Wrexham and Flintshire’s essential workers have come together to ensure life can carry on as best as possible, and Flintshire Council wants to make sure that frontline council services get the recognition they deserve, reports The Leader.

Refuse collectors and council workers on the frontline such as social care staff and teachers have been hailed as the unsung heroes of the coronavirus crisis as they have continued to perform their vital roles.

Even with the risk of contracting COVID-19, refuse collection staff have continues to empty general rubbish and recycling bins as normal, with the only suspended service being garden waste collections.

Refuse crews have reported facing incidents such as tissues being left in open recycling bags, which has led to calls to the public to stop this to prevent the spread of the virus.

Council politicians are wanting to make sure that while much of the praise has been levelled at NHS workers, their frontline staff are not forgotten.

Carolyn Thomas, deputy leader of Flintshire Council, said: “I see lots of support, quite rightly, for NHS workers and people keeping food supplies going, but please can we also recognise the role of council employees and give them some appreciation for all they are doing?

“Remember that key workers are also social health care workers, working in care homes and in the community delivering domiciliary care managed through the council. The NHS is asking councils to find more room for patients as they clear wards and there is a lot of strain on managers who are trying to organise this as more staff are self-isolating or returning to NHS work.

“The operatives have to still try to social distance, and some have gone into self-isolation so others are helping out. A friendly word of appreciation, assistance and tolerance goes a long way.”
