While you are raising a glass, tucking into a turkey dinner and enjoying the festivities with family and friends, spare a thought for everyone who is working over Christmas.
Over the past week, Surrey has suffered flood and tempest, landslips, accidents and a fair bit of road and rail misery.
Over one million people will be at work today.
Just because the holidays are now upon us doesn’t mean the real world stands still. Throughout the country care workers will be making their way to nursing homes to make life just a little brighter for the elderly. Community nurses and carers will travel day and at night whatever the weather brings, to care for the sick and the elderly in their own homes. Hospitals will work as usual caring for patients – people will die and babies will be born.
The work of highway engineers and ambulance personnel and paramedics, doctors and nurses will carry on regardless of the jivolity some of us are enjoying. Firemen and women will be waiting at their posts for the alarm to signal that yet another festive candle has caught fire to the table decorations. As the shout is raised and they race to the rescue – let us all spare a thought for everyone who is working over Christmas.
Thank you to every single one of you for your support throughout 2019. We are grateful for all the encouragement, thoughts and ideas you send our way.
The Waverley Web Team wish you all a Very Happy Christmas.
