John Red­wood, MP for Wok­ing­ham

The Wokingham Paper - - NEWS -

CHRIST­MAS is a time when our great tra­di­tions are flexed by modern re­al­i­ties. What en­dures is the spirit of Christ­mas.

We look for­ward to a time of giv­ing, when we think more of those in need and those mem­bers of our fam­ily and those in the cir­cle of our friends that need some ex­tra mid-win­ter care. It is good to think less of the daily work wor­ries, and more of what we can do to brighten the lives of oth­ers.

The Wok­ing­ham com­mu­nity has many gen­er­ous and car­ing peo­ple who do work a lit­tle magic for the rest.

I have heard great singing from the choral so­ci­eties, seen the plans for a lively liv­ing ad­vent cal­en­dar, and know of char­i­ta­ble help be­ing planned for those in need. I would like to thank all in­volved.

I would also like to thank all who serve the pub­lic through­out the year in dif­fer­ent ways. There are many who en­sure we are kept safe, can be treated when ill, can buy our daily bread and en­sure our wa­ter and en­ergy comes on at home when we need it.
