Council Thanks Local Schools

Bexley schools have been doing their bit to help the Borough’s key frontline workers stay safe during the current lockdown.

Five of the borough’s schools this week helped Bexley keep care staff safe, by donating more than 450 pairs of protective goggles.

St Joseph’s and Upton primary schools and Cleeve Park, Hurstmere and Trinity secondary schools heeded the Council’s appeal for protective equipment earlier this week.

Leader of the London Borough of Bexley, Councillor Teresa O’Neill OBE said: “I would like to thank the schools that have given us their supply of goggles. Vital day-to-day visits to our most vulnerable residents continue throughout the lockdown. Having the right protective equipment provides the reassurance our teams need and helps to keep them safe and well.”
