    A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all
    It's hard to believe that it is already time to wish all residents a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. It has been another busyyear, campaigning to make our area and Bedford Borough an even better place to live and work. The greatest gift we could exchange at this time of year is to look out for one another. Please remember your neighbours at this time of year; especially the elderly and those who live alone. My very best wishes go to those who are sick at home or in hospital this Christmas. I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
