Christmas message from the chairman.

Christmas message from the chairman

For many families Christmas can be a difficult time. While being a time of great joy for many, it can also be a time of great sadness and hardship for others, particularly those who are lonely or have recently lost family members or close friends.

During the pandemic, there have been many examples of kindness and a notable spirit of volunteering to help those having to isolate and to help the vulnerable and elderly.

I would like to give praise to all frontline workers who have continued to work under very difficult circumstances and my thanks and gratitude to all our health professionals and care workers for looking after us in times of ill health and stress.

Councillor Pat Smith

Chairman of East Riding of Yorkshire Council
