Christmas and New Year Message from Fiona Hyslop MSP
“As your MSP for the Linlithgow Constituency, I am delighted to wish my constituents a very Merry Christmas and best wishes for the year ahead.
“Christmas provides us all with an opportunity for family and friends to spend valuable time together and I hope that my constituents get the chance to relax and celebrate over the festive period. It also a time to reflect and to help those who may be alone at this time of year. I would encourage all in West Lothian to offer compassion and support to those who are without their loved ones this Christmas.
“This time of year also allows us to reflect on the year gone by. This year I held a successful Employment Fayre for the community to engage with employers and to introduce our young people to the world of work. This year we also saw the completion of the iconic Queensferry Crossing, now we have three bridges crossing the Forth into Fife built in three different centuries.
“This time of year also encourages us to look forward and next year our young people will be leading the way as we celebrate 2018 as Scotland’s Year of Young People. I would encourage my constituents to take advantage of what is happening locally and support their exciting and inspiring initiatives.
“Finally, as we move into another period of wintry weather it is important to also pay tribute to members of the health and emergency services, postal workers and local members of the public in the community who are doing everything they can to serve our communities in difficult conditions.
“I hope everyone has had a wonderful Christmas and I pass on my very best wishes for a prosperous 2018.”
