Can You Fly a Flag for Key Workers?

As a symbolic gesture aimed at showing solidarity for those working on the frontline to protect those most at risk of the pandemic, Stowmarket Town Council has raised a THANK YOU NHS flag over Stowmarket Town Centre.
Now faced with an extended lockdown, they are asking everyone to join in by creating a window display, which could include your very own flag to thank your chosen key worker.

There are many wonderful keyworkers out there keeping our community going, these include:

  • All NHS staff
  • Firefighters
  • Police officers
  • Volunteers
  • Carers and support workers
  • Supermarket/shop workers
  • Delivery drivers
  • Farmers and farm workers
  • Teachers
  • Postal workers
  • Refuse collectors
  • Factory workers
  • Vets

Once you have created your window display, send a photo to and it will be included in the council’s Fly the Flag video which we will be sharing on their website and social media pages.
Will you have the best or biggest window display on your road? We can’t wait to see the pictures!
