Best wishes for a happy and safe holiday
I wish to take the opportunity to wish all residents of East Gippsland a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
The festive season is an opportunity to spend time with family and friends, reflect on the year that has passed and to look forward to what a new year may bring.
The holidays are a wonderful time to relax, spend quality time together and take a break from the regular routine.
We think of our hard-working service people and volunteers who carry on working through the festive season to ensure we are all safe, well cared for and well-fed, and we thank you for what you do for our community.
Christmas can also be a difficult time of year for those who have lost or are missing their loved ones and we must support those whose spirits may not be as bright at this time of year.
We live in a great part of the world with great people and I’m looking forward to working with you as our region prospers and I look forward to continuing to work with the many organisations, groups and individuals in East Gippsland in 2023.
If travelling this Christmas and New Year period, take care on the roads and on the water. Drive to the conditions and remember to take your time and don’t take risks, as it is better to arrive at a function a few minutes later than not at all.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year.
