The Mayor of Buckingham, Cllr. Margaret Gateley, was among many organisations and individuals who gave their thanks to the NHS, Social Care and Frontline Workers for all their efforts, not only during this difficult time but for always being there when they are needed. In Cllr. Gateley’s online speech she said “In Buckingham there has been a real sense of people pulling together in this difficult time.   …NHS staff have worked conscientiously and bravely in incredibly difficult circumstances risking their own and their families’ health. It has been a challenging time for everyone but especially for those who are working on the frontline albeit staff in the NHS, those stacking shelves or serving in supermarkets and essential shops, those volunteering to support people in greatest need or working in care homes to protect the most vulnerable in our community.”
