Residents urged to have their say on Covid-19 commemoration

Bradford Council is urging residents to have their say on ways to commemorate the loss and sacrifices experienced by our residents during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Residents of the Bradford District are being invited to have their say on ways to commemorate the loss and sacrifices experienced by our residents during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on many of residents in the district and now the Council is asking for views on how we can work with communities, organisations, groups and individuals on developing ways to commemorate and how we can come together to mark this period in our history.

Cllr Susan Hinchcliffe, Leader of Bradford Council, said:  “The pandemic has had an impact on the lives of everyone in the district.  Alongside us coming together to protect our most vulnerable, our society and businesses, we saw many of our people losing their lives, individuals and families losing their loved ones, others their livelihoods, many being left isolated and countless others suffering as their normal lives disappeared.

“We are thinking about what we can do as a whole community, to remember those we have lost, to recognise the loss and suffering experienced across all our communities and to support each other during these difficult times.

“We want to be able to do this as a whole community and also with communities and so would welcome your views and ideas about some of the ways we might remember and reflect.”

To take part and have your say visit letstalk.bradford.gov.uk/covid the survey will only take a few minutes. There is also an interactive map where residents can pin where memorials or events could take place.

Polls will also run on Bradford Council’s social media.

The feedback received through this consultation will be used to help us, working with our partners and communities, consider what memorials and events would best reflect what our communities would like to see.
