Op­ti­mistic for 2016

Isis Town and Country - - Christmas Greetings - MAL FOR­MAN, Mayor, Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil

I’M CER­TAIN I echo the sen­ti­ments of many peo­ple when I say that it’s quite in­cred­i­ble to think that an­other year has passed us by and Christ­mas is only days away.

This year, while chal­leng­ing for coun­cil, has been one where we have been able to po­si­tion many projects in a man­ner that will en­able us to launch into 2016 filled with con­fi­dence.

The res­i­dents of our re­gion should head into 2016 with an op­ti­mistic out­look, buoyed I hope, af­ter shar­ing a mem­o­rable Christ­mas with fam­ily and friends.

We all look for­ward to the Christ­mas break as a time to re­lax and share happy times with those close to us. Sadly, this is not al­ways the case for many peo­ple who may find Christ­mas a cheer­less and lonely time.

I know the gen­eros­ity of res­i­dents right across the re­gion has been to the fore in pro­vid­ing cash, gro­ceries and gifts for the less for­tu­nate in our com­mu­nity and I trust th­ese goods dis­trib­uted through our so­cial net­works reach their tar­get and brighten the Christ­mas pe­riod for the re­cip­i­ents.

For many across the re­gion Christ­mas is a pe­riod to ac­knowl­edge and strengthen their faith and be­liefs.

On be­half of the coun­cil­lors and staff of Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil, may I wish you and your fam­i­lies the best for the fes­tive sea­son and pros­per­ity in the year ahead. Please stay safe and enjoy this hol­i­day time.

Bund­aberg City Coun­cil Mayor Mal For­man.
