I wish all a wonderful Christmas and good health and happiness throughout 2020. While for the majority of us Christmas is a happy time, for many it is just the opposite. So this Christmas, let’s keep in mind the homeless, the sick and the lonely. Let us all give thanks in advance for those who will work – paid and unpaid – to keep us safe throughout the holiday period. Chief amongst them will be our firefighters who need and deserve more resources. Let’s also remember of farmers who are suffering from the worst drought in our history but are showing typically true grit. By them we stand.
My office at 3 Edward Street, Cessnock will be closed from midday 24 December and re-open on Monday, 13 January 2020.
If you are in need of support during the holidays, I have put together some important phone numbers to have on file.
