Christmas message from the Council Leader and Mayor of West Lancashir
2020 has been a difficult year for all of us. As Christmas is almost here we hope you will join us as we reflect on how the coronavirus has affected all of our lives over last 12 months.
Councillor Terence Aldridge, Mayor of West Lancashire, said: "On behalf of the Council I would like to express our condolences to anyone who has lost a loved one to this terrible virus. Christmas is a time when we miss our lost loved ones the most and our thoughts are with you all."
"Although our communities have been hit hard by the virus we have stuck together throughout these tough times. 2021 will soon be here and I hope it will be a better year for all of us."
Councillor Ian Moran, Leader of West Lancashire Borough Council, added: "I would like to thank all the services that have worked so hard to protect and support our communities throughout the ongoing pandemic, including the NHS, all the voluntary organisations and our own council staff."
"We hope everyone has a good Christmas as we all deserve one, and many of us will be looking forward to spending time at home with our families while the government restrictions are relaxed for the day. Let's all help each other to keep safe, particularly over that time. If we cut the number of cases in West Lancashire we can save lives and eventually reduce the restrictions we have to face in our daily lives and get back to doing some of the things we love."
"I would also ask everyone to keep the great community spirit going by sparing a thought for those who may need a helping hand over the festive period while keeping ourselves safe."
