A Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Updated: Feb 19

Thanks to the Barrhead News for giving me the opportunity to add my Christmas Message to their festive edition

It will be a huge honour to serve you again in 2020

It is a huge honour to have been elected to represent East Renfrewshire as your MP. I will represent every person, every community and every area in East Renfrewshire to the best of my ability – and it is a privilege to have the opportunity to do so.

It was a hard-fought election and I hope to have a couple of days off over Christmas with my family, which I know is a luxury that some people will not have. Retail and hospitality workers will be exhausted, carers will not have a day off and we will all rely on those working in essential roles, including transport and the teams gritting our roads. In particular, I am grateful to everyone working in our emergency services, keeping us safe at Christmas and all year round.

I love Christmas but I know it can be a difficult time for many people. Financial struggles and the pressure to have the picture-perfect Christmas can be a huge strain on families. This Christmas, if you know someone will be alone, why not pop in for a quick cuppa?

I wish all readers of the Barrhead News a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
