I am pleased to have this opportunity to send a message to the people of our great city at this time of year.

Wolverhampton is known to be a welcoming city.  We thank everyone for their friendliness and for welcoming us into their homes, clubs, societies and associations with such warmth and hospitality since my election to office in May.  The Mayoress and I have experienced a truly rewarding time and have been fortunate to meet with many wonderful people from all walks of life. 

As we have undertaken our Civic duties, we have been greatly impressed at the goodwill that exists between the diverse communities that make up this great city and the amount of charity work that takes place on a daily basis by so many people who go about their tasks quietly and without self reward, only seeking to make life a little better for those less fortunate than ourselves.  

As Christmas and the New Year approach, we ask you to think about those who are unwell, who have been bereaved, the elderly, the vulnerable and those who feel lonely, and be a good neighbour in this season of goodwill. 

The Mayoress and I wish you and your loved ones a truly happy and peaceful Christmas and a healthy and prosperous New Year.

The Right Worshipful The Mayor of Wolverhampton, Councillor Milkinder Jaspal
