I know many people in Chelmsford are concerned about Climate Change. It was a great honour to represent the UK at COP 26 in Glasgow at the start of November. I supported the UK team in welcoming world leaders and specifically focused on the issues affecting African countries.
In Chelmsford, I have also been supporting local residents with ongoing problems that we are experiencing with Royal Mail postal deliveries. This has been having a very serious impact on some local residents and is extremely concerning. It has resulted in people missing important medical appointments and impacted on local businesses. I have pressed Royal Mail to treat this as an urgent and serious incident.
If you are still being affected please do email me to let me know the details and any evidence and I will raise this with Royal Mail.
We are into the run up to Christmas. As well as some of the larger chains please do support Chelmsford’s independent shops. I always enjoy the chance to visit Chelmsford’s indoor market. I am told there has been a market in Chelmsford since the 11th century and our market includes many family-run businesses, handed down through generations. They really would appreciate our support at this time of the year.
I wish everyone a merry Christmas and a peaceful and happy New Year.
As ever, please do follow my Facebook page for local updates and email me if you need help or advice. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
