PEOPLE who have gone above and beyond during the coronavirus pandemic could feature on a visual display in a town centre.

Witney Town Council has launched its Covid Hero Awards, which seek to recognise ‘all those that work hard behind the scenes, setting up and monitoring social media pages, fetching and carrying, packing food parcels or calling someone just to check in on them’.

Every person or organisation nominated will receive a badge and certificate from the council, while a visual display in the town centre is planned.

Joy Aitman, mayor of Witney, said: “We are overwhelmed with the outpouring of kindness across the community.

“Everyone is doing what they can to make sure nobody is left wanting. We are seeing the very best in people at the very worst of times.”

There is no closing date for making nominations, while the Covid-19 pandemic is ongoing.
