I would just like to wish all the readers of this blog and Rushmere residents a 'Happy Christmas'
2012 will be a difficult year for all of us and I with my Labour colleagues in Ipswich will be trying our hardest to do the best for the people of Ipswich.
But this Christmas I will also be thinking about my friends and comrades serving in Afghanistan, both 2 and 5 Rifles will be away from their families this Christmas. I remember the Christmases I had to spend away from my family and to be honest it is easier for the troops than those who are left behind.
So this Christmas if you wish to help our troops away from home visit the Care 4Casulaties website or Labour Friends of the Forces.
