A Christmas message from Harriett Baldwin MP

Evesham Editorial 25th Dec, 2023   0

With Christmas here, I hope that many of you will be able to look forward to a little time relaxing with friends and family.

I am sure you will share my sadness that the global news headlines have been dominated by violent conflict – both in the Middle East and the continuing war in Ukraine.

I want to take the time to thank all those who serve in our armed forces at home and abroad keeping us and our families safe. We should never take peace for granted.

I also want to take time to thank the many people whose working routines will go on as normal through the festive period – the doctors, nurses, firefighters, police, the shop staff, waiters and waitresses who will be working harder than ever.

We live in an increasingly busy 365 days a week 24 hours a day world so it may be that many of us will have to work to make sure the country keeps running.

I also spare a thought for those who have lost loved ones. Christmas is a time to celebrate but also remember and I encourage you to take the time to keep an eye on your elderly or infirm neighbours who may be on their own at this time of year. It’s a time for giving as well as receiving.

Finally, I hope you all tuck into our amazing local produce and shop in local stores when you prepare for the Christmas break. Our local food producers work tirelessly all year round to make sure you can enjoy the best quality goods. I hope you all have a Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
