John Redwood, MP for Wokingham
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.
