THERE’S been a real festive feel in Bromsgrove this year, not least with all the switch-ons across the District, Christmas markets and the lantern parade.
But while it’s a time for celebrating, it’s also a time for reflection and to remember people for whom Christmas is not such a jolly time.
By just taking a few minutes out of our day to spend time with an elderly neighbour who may be spending Christmas alone or a kind word to a friend who is working over the holidays or whose partner is placed overseas, we can make a difference.
I want to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.
Coun Caroline Spencer
Bromsgrove District Council chairman
