Sittingbourne and Sheppey Labour wish all our members and friends a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Here is a Christmas message from our Council Leader, Roger Truelove.
Can I wish everyone in Sittingbourne and Sheppey a good Christmas and a peaceful New Year. The pandemic has changed our lives in so many ways and it has also changed our outlook, at least I hope so. We need to have a mutual regard for the safety of all. We cannot just look after ourselves and stay safe. We have seen the enormous demands of government, both central and local, with schemes to keep people safe and secure. We recognise too, do we not, that we cannot stay safe by just looking after our own country. To ignore the rest of the World is to invite new variants into our lives. And most people, I hope, have stopped sneering at “experts” and recognise that we must follow the science, even though key decisions still rest with politicians. We will recover, if we learn the right lessons.
