With November and Remembrance events now behind us, we find ourselves looking forward to Christmas. I was privileged to lay a wreath in Garstang on Remembrance Sunday this year. It was great to see so many people turning out to remember the fallen in all conflicts.
Since my last article, I have been shocked and greatly sadden by the sudden death of my friend and local Councillor Viv Taylor. Viv was a Cabinet Member on both Wyre Council and Lancashire County Council.
A week is certainly a long time in politics and the last month has seen major changes. We are going through interesting times and as a result my office is receiving a high volume of letters from constituents giving their views.
