November 2022
Chair's Introduction
We’ve had a very busy year resurrecting the group after a Covid-enforced lull. Your hard work and contributions have helped us achieve significant success in both recruiting and improving our road safety messaging and activities.
Thank you all.
Have you found yourself counting the shopping days until Christmas?
I hadn't until I met a lady who proudly told me she'd already done all her Christmas shopping.
I'll save my shopping until Christmas Eve, as usual...

My hope is to spend more time wrapping presents than I do untangling lights…
May your home be filled with joy this Christmas season and bring to you and your family the promise of a better and happier tomorrow; full of love and hope.
Merry Christmas everyone.
