Celebrate our County and its Unsung Heroes on Gloucestershire Day

A special day is being organised to publicly thank the people who have gone above and beyond their normal duty in Gloucestershire during the Covid-19 pandemic.

‘Gloucestershire Day’ will also be an opportunity to celebrate the spirit and strength of our communities and to nominate someone who lives or works in the county who has helped you during the crisis.

It will be held on Monday 21 September to coincide with World Appreciation Day and there are plans to make it an annual event.

To celebrate the county and its response and recovery from Covid-19, we want to promote everything that is great about Gloucestershire – the districts, businesses, areas of interest and hidden treasures that make it such a wonderful place to live and work.

Ways to mark the day include:

  • Posting photos of your favourite place or county view on social media with the hashtag #GlosDay
  • Displaying the Gloucestershire flag in windows – there’s printable one to colour in on the Gloucestershire Day page.
  • Adding a frame to your Facebook profile photo – search GlosDay on frames to find it
  • Using one of the #GlosDay filters on Instagram

We are asking people to be as creative as they like to show what makes Gloucestershire special to them – whether it’s making, creating or painting something – and to share it with us.  Click here to read more about it.
