Seasonal Message from Cllr Henry Bass, Chairman of Maldon District Council

Published on Monday, 24th December 2018

Councillor Henry Bass, Chairman of Maldon District Council sends best wishes to everyone for a happy Christmas and peaceful New Year.

It has been an honour and privilege to have been elected to serve as Chairman of Maldon District Council. When I first took office, I said that I would visit some businesses and organisations particularly in the rural parts of the District, and I have kept my word. 

During these visits it has been a great pleasure to meet so many enterprising and talented people who have shown great resolve and innovation to make the Maldon District a successful employment area.

I have been humbled by the excellent work of the many voluntary organisations, including the young people within the District, who support others by making such an important contribution to the community. I would also like to pay tribute to all those who work over the festive season to keep us safe and well and I extend my thanks and gratitude to them all. 

Christmas is a time for reconciliation worldwide and we should all work with tolerance and harmony to ensure so that we can settle our differences and start 2019 with a fresh determination and also spare a thought for those less fortunate than ourselves. 

And finally, I would like to take this opportunity to send my warmest wishes to everyone for a happy Christmas and peaceful New Year.

Councillor Henry Bass, Chairman of Maldon District Council
