A plaque to honour members of the Higham Ferrers community affected by the Covid-19 pandemic could be unveiled if plans are approved.

Higham Ferrers Town Council has proposed that a black metal plaque with gold lettering be attached to the wall of the town hall.

The circular 30cm plaque would be placed 2m high on the side of the building facing the main road, close to the noticeboard.
