GO GREEN: Watford Town Hall lights up green for St John Ambulance 

 Published on: 25th June 2021   |   By: Lizzie Ellis   |   Category: Uncategorized

Landmarks and buildings across the country were illuminated in green yesterday evening (Thursday, June 24) to support national healthcare and first aid charity, St John Ambulance.

Watford Town Hall was one of more than 100 buildings nationally to join in with the ‘Light it Green’ initiative to mark St John’s Day on June 24.

The day is a focal point of the charity’s annual calendar, when the team of volunteers and staff reflect on the past 12-months and plan for future work in communities around the country.

Due to COVID-19, St John has had to mark St John’s Day in different ways from usual, and the ‘Light it Green’ initiative is one way that the country was asked to take part on the day.

Elected Mayor of Watford Peter Taylor said: “We were delighted to be able to support St John’s Day by lighting up the Town Hall green. The charity and their staff and volunteers do incredible work as they continue to provide support for the NHS vaccination programme, respond to the pandemic, and start returning to event duties and providing first aid training.”

Mick Messinger, Chancellor of the Priory of England and the Islands of the Order of St John, said: “For the second year running, it was wonderful to see so many buildings lit up in green on June 24 to help us celebrate St John’s Day and we’re immensely grateful to the owners and custodians who agreed for this to happen. The contribution and participation of so many people around the country has made St John’s Day 2021 another memorable day and we hope many people will be prompted to ask us how our work has had a positive impact on the lives of others.”
