Stay safe on the roads this sum­mer

Te Puke Times - - Christmas Messages -

The days are longer, the weather is warmer, kids are on the beach, sausages are on the bar­be­cue, and cricket is on the TV. All of these are tell-tale signs that a clas­sic Bay of Plenty sum­mer is set­tling in.

As the year ends, I want to thank the com­mu­nity for the sup­port, guid­ance, and friend­ship you have of­fered me in 2018.

My fam­ily and I wish you a very Merry Christ­mas, a Happy New Year, and an en­joy­able break. I’m look­ing for­ward to some much-needed rest and recre­ation, con­nect­ing with friends and fam­ily, and recharg­ing the bat­ter­ies for an­other big year ahead — as I’m sure we all are.

Please stay safe on our roads. We will un­doubt­edly have an in­flux of vis­i­tors here to en­joy this re­gion’s sun, sand and surf — which means traf­fic will be up, boats will be towed and gaps will be tight. Let’s not take any risks and make sure ev­ery­one gets home to their fam­i­lies.

As we en­joy the sum­mer re­mem­ber not ev­ery­one is able to take this time off as many of us do — so to the po­lice, doc­tors, nurses, store own­ers, petrol at­ten­dants and any­one else who keeps us safe, fed and mov­ing dur­ing the break — I of­fer a sin­cere and heart­felt thank you.

I’ll see you all in 2019. I hope it brings you noth­ing but health, wealth, love and hap­pi­ness.

— Todd Muller MP for Bay of Plenty
