Lanarkshire figures give their Christmas messages

NORTH Lanarkshire Provost Jim Robertson shares with our readers his Christmas message.

This is my first Christmas as Provost of North Lanarkshire and it has been a privilege to have met so many of you during the past year and been able to see some of the tremendous projects taking place in our communities.

Our thanks also go to the council employees who provide many valuable services throughout the year and particularly to those who carry on providing essential services for our residents

throughout the festive period.

It has been a pleasure to meet so many people who are making a real difference within our communities, and it has been an honour to be able to recognise their efforts throughout the year.

On behalf of North Lanarkshire Council, I would like to wish all our residents a very happy Christmas and best wishes for 2013.

Jim Robertson, North Lanarkshire Provost
