A CHIRK hotel is again housing NHS frontline staff for free as they continue their hard work to look after those worse-affected by Covid-19.

The Hand Hotel housed local NHS staff during the first national lockdown which began in March 2020, and is opening its doors to provide accommodation to health workers once again.

Staff at the hotel have also been working hard to provide a takeaway meal service for people living in the area.

Their efforts were recently recognised by Clwyd South MP Simon Baynes, who sent a letter to hotel manager Paul Rogers and his staff.

The letter, which was posted on The Hand Hotel Chirk Facebook page, read: “I am writing to thank you all for helping the local community over recent months.

“I was very impressed to hear of your hard work over the last few months, which certainly hasn’t gone unnoticed.

“I’m aware that you have housed many NHS workers, who have been on the frontline, free of charge, supplied takeaway deliveries to the community and also conducted fundraising activities.

“It has been an extremely tough year for so many people across the country and you’re a wonderful example of a local business supporting our local community – so thank you.”

A spokesman for the hotel posted the letter onto their Facebook page, and thanked the MP for his acknowledgement.
