CHRISTMAS is a time to celebrate so let’s do that, but it’s also a time to remember those who have little to celebrate.

This Christmas we will be looking back on a remarkable year when we celebrated the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the sparkling success of our athletes at both the Olympics and the Paralympics.

In these celebrations we have been reminded that success in any field depends on commitment - Her Majesty shows it in her commitment to serve the people of this country and our athletes show it in their commitment to their sports.

But as we look back with pride on a year in which the nation really enhanced its reputation in the world, we also know that we face huge challenges to our peace and prosperity in the year that lies ahead.

We know there are many people, both at home and abroad, for whom the coming year offers little to celebrate.

So those of us who are fortunate enough to be able to celebrate Christmas with our families this year should remember with

humility those who cannot - and pledge to do whatever we can to improve the lives of others in a spirit of charity and commitment.

Peter Luff,

Mid-Worcestershire MP
