Creative members of Ely Rock Eels once again thanked the city’s emergency services for their hard work amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The rockers praised workers for going against “hardships and risks they have experienced over the last six months” and even hand-painted Captain Sir Tom Moore.
Fleur Patten of Ely Rock Eels said: “We are so lucky to have a permanent presence of all three emergency services in Ely.
“We felt it was time to thank the staff again because of the hardships and risks they have experienced over the last six months.
“I was particularly grateful in July when I was rushed to hospital in an Ely ambulance with Ely paramedics, Sharon and Erica, and admitted to Addenbrooke’s.
