Workers from Hopkins Homes, on the Kingsfleet development in Norwich Road, Thetford, left a message for NHS staff during the coronavirus pandemic and got an aerial shot of it using a drone.

Tom Beeston, site manager for Hopkins Homes, who are completing the first phase of the 5,000 home development, said: “The design spans 15m by 22m, made from packs of blocks, which are usually used to construct dream houses on the development.

“We wanted to make a big statement and thank the NHS frontline workers for everything they are doing.

“They are making such a big impact in the pandemic that we wanted to do them justice with a big statement, but in keeping with the construction theme.”
