Merry Christmas one and all

Before I sign off for the next week I’d like to take a minute to wish all the canny folk of Shields a very very Merry Christmas.

And a special thanks to those of you who won’t be getting much of a break because of the important work you do keeping things ticking over for the rest of us. To all of you working in the local shops, bars and restaurants, Merry Christmas, and I really hope people are kind to you and tip you well! To those of you doing in amazing job in our local care homes, ensuring that our elderly and vulnerable enter into the spirit of the season, Merry Christmas. To those of you out there keeping the buses and metros moving, Merry Christmas. To the blue light services, dealing so well with all the stressful scenarios that Christmas can generate, ensuring that we’re all safe, Merry Christmas.

And to all those I’m sure I must have missed from the list above, whoever you are, whatever you’re doing, I hope that somewhere in the midst of it all, you’ll get to share in the joy of Christmas too.

See you in 2023!
