The Mayor’s Christmas message

Story posted on

Once again we are getting to the end of another year, I’m sure, like me, no-one can quite understand how quickly the year passes by. 

It certainly doesn’t seem to be a year since I was writing the last message.

It’s been great to see the town’s green spaces and play parks looking so much better this year. Our caretaking team are doing a great job and I have been proud to see the Melksham Town vans with their hi-viz branding scurrying around the town and seeing the team working so hard to make Melksham a great place to work and play.

The hi-light of our horticultural year was the award of the Gold for the Bloom Team, a collaboration between volunteers and the Town Council. I look forward to helping you achieve the hatrick.

The major events in Melksham continue to be very well attended and supported. 

I love seeing the crowds coming into Party in the Park , the Carnival and the Food and River Festival. The Town Council supports all these organisations through grant funding to enable the events to be run by their amazing dedicated teams of volunteers.

By the time you read this, the Christmas lights will have been switched on. 

Again another collaboration between the lights team and the Town Council. We are delighted to pay for the tree, and to give a large grant to help with the work the volunteers do.

I’ve met so many people and groups this year in my role as Mayor and it has been a great honour to represent my town at events around Wiltshire.

2018 has been a difficult year for many in Melksham; the announcement that Cooper Tires was cutting 300 jobs was certainly a body blow for the town and those employees who work there. We can only hope that no-one will be in a forced redundancy situation, but that employers will find alternative jobs or new directions for themselves and their families.

The GP situation in Melksham is again something that is concerning our residents. When a GP surgery closes, it is a worrying time for vulnerable members of our families to make sure that they can access the care they need.

Again we hope that all patients will find new GPs to look after themselves and their families.

Whilst we cannot be sure what 2019 will  bring for  Melksham, I will promise to keep working to make sure that the voice of Melksham is heard around Wiltshire and beyond.

I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

    All of us want to live a happy life. We think that earning a huge amount of wealth will be able to make our life happier and prosperous. That’s why we work day and night without any hesitation. We only dream about becoming rich and prosperous some or other day. In between all this, we forget about our health. We do not care about getting enough sleep per day. Food habits followed by us will be worse than ever. We depend on fast foods and junk foods. All this gradually declines our wealth. But we cannot realize it until the situation worsens. Finally, we would achieve our dream of becoming a rich and wealthy person. By the time many life-threatening diseases would have conquered our body and would have made us sick. We have to live with that poor health for the rest of our life. No money earned by us will not able to restore our health. This will make us rethink about our lifestyle. If we would have given slight care on our health, we could have saved ourselves from these diseases. There is no use of such late thinking. But young people can think about their health now itself. Spending half an hour per day for doing the exercises well enough to keep our body fit. Apart from this, we must put control of the food items that may potentially harm our health. If our body is fit, our mind will also be fit. Thus we will be able to stay happy and have a positive attitude towards our life. Other problems like tension, depression, etc. can be avoided by giving slight care to our health. This post has really helped us to know the importance of doing exercise in our day to day life.
