Barnet Council’s Environment Committee this week (30 June) agreed a Labour member’s item to thank frontline Streetscene and Parks staff for their work keeping the Borough clean and safe during the pandemic lock-down. The member’s item from East Barnet councillor, Laurie Williams, said that:
“Barnet’s bin collection staff, street sweepers, parks maintenance staff, those working to clear fly tipping and all other frontline staff have done an amazing job during the Covid-19 outbreak, alongside those redeployed to other roles. They have been rightly thanked by residents across the borough. I ask that the Environment committee sends its own message of thanks to Streetscene staff for their hard work during this difficult time and that officers pass this on in the most appropriate way.”
Cllr Williams said:“Our frontline Environment staff have worked through the lock-down period to help keep the Borough clean and safe at a very difficult time and despite the risk of contracting Covid-19.
“It is right and proper that the Environment Committee puts on record its thanks to them.”
