Mayor’s Christmas Message

I would firstly like to take the time to thank everyone for the kindness and hospitality that I have been shown as I fulfil my Mayoral duties. Being Mayor of this wonderful town, and representing it, is a huge honour for me and both a privilege and a humbling experience.

I have the upmost respect for those of you who give their time, energy and money to help others less fortunate than themselves. You offer friendship, companionship and communication to those who need it the most - especially to those who are lonely.

It has been a challenging year for many in Oswestry but, despite the undoubted effect that covid has had, we, you, the people of Oswestry prevail. The Town does not always get the credit it deserves. We fly under the radar and we get on with it. As we head into the Christmas period it is important that we do so with optimism, taking the time out of our busy lives to spend time with those we care about, to remember those who we have lost and value what we have. Celebrate, have fun, be welcoming and be hopeful.

To the people of the town of Oswestry, my sincerest Christmas greetings.
