Your chance to say thanks to our frontline workers in the Covid-19 crisis
September 7, 2020

Wellington Shire Council is giving locals a chance to say a big thank you to the essential workers who are keeping us healthy, clean, fed and united as a community during the Covid-19 crisis.

Port of Sale’s outdoor screen is set to be turned into a billboard where community members can display a short personal message of thanks to essential workers.

Wellington Shire Council Mayor Alan Hall said every worker who is on the frontline in the midst of this pandemic deserves a message of thanks and support.

“We all know someone, a retail worker, teacher, cleaner, aged-care worker or health professional, who is a Covid-19 hero,” Cr Hall said.

Council will post as many messages as possible on the big screen at the Port of Sale.
