A Christmas Message from Alberto Costa MP
As we head into the festive season, I do hope this message finds members and friends well.
Reflecting on the year almost passed, it is quite easy for many of us to feel lost and frustrated; by not seeing
our friends and family and having to cancel a wedding or a party and in some cases not being able to say
goodbye to our loved ones, it goes without saying that we have all had to make huge sacrifices over these past
few months – however with Christmas on the horizon, I am pleased to inform members that there are finally
some reasons to be cheerful.
As many will no doubt have seen, in recent weeks there have been some tremendous breakthroughs in
developing a safe, effective vaccine for the coronavirus. I am immensely proud that the UK has been leading
the way on the vaccine front; with Oxford University’s tests showing brilliant levels of success, and with trials
imminent, it should not be long before we see the first hint of a workable, safe vaccine in Britain.
Talking of Christmas, I am pleased to say that the festive spirit has been alive and kicking in South Leicestershire
for many months now; we have seen communities coming together to help their fellow neighbour like never
before, and I am pleased too that others are doing their part. A good example of this are the wonderful District
Councils in our part of the county; both of whom have introduced free parking measures in one form or
another – a much-needed, and welcome boost, to the independent shops of South Leicestershire ahead of the
crucial Christmas shopping season.
Christmas will of course be very different for all of us this year, however, with renewed hope for the New Year, I
do hope members will have a peaceful and relaxing break – I wish all a Merry Christmas and happy New Year,
and greatly look forward to seeing everyone very soon.
