A city once filled up with loud restaurant terraces and quirky cafes has become unrecognisable, with most businesses having to close their doors due to the coronavirus lockdown.
However, companies across Nottingham that are now empty are now showing their gratitude and support to the NHS, dedicating small tributes to key-workers during the pandemic.
Here are seven such tributes we found on a walk around the city centre:
The hotel is sending colourful rainbows and hearts to the NHS, showing their appreciation during lockdown.
These artworks have been produced by employees and their children, representing their support for the NHS.
The well-known chain have put discounts and offers in place for NHS staff, as well as reserving essential products for them.
Any key worker can apply for them if they show their ID when they shop.
Tabitha Saunders, a 21-year-old Waitrose employee from Wollaton, said: “We put aside a part of the essential products because we sell them very quickly, so this way our NHS customers can buy whatever they need.”
Located next to the Victoria centre in Nottingham, the hotel displayed a huge poster to show their gratitude to key-workers during coronavirus pandemic.
Nottingham City Transport
They are still running across the city, and appreciate all the efforts of the NHS staff.
The local business have displayed a huge banner outside the shop, expressing their support and gratitude.
Not all heroes wear capes, children say. Our NHS heroes save lives.
More rainbows dedicated to the NHS staff have been displayed at Tesco Express, on Shakespeare street.
