Dear John,

Christmas is approaching and I hope you have wonderful plans to spend time with family and friends this year.

It's the best time of year to come together and share cherished moments with loved ones.

I want to thank all the many NHS staff, police officers, firefighters and other emergency workers who give up their own Christmas breaks to keep us safe and look after others. Their commitment is remarkable.

It's also important to recognise the amazing sacrifices of the brave men and women in our Armed Forces. All year round, they serve our country, putting their own lives second to doing their duty.

I also want to thank everyone who will be working hard over the festive period to provide services to the public, such as the small businesses and hospitality workers who won't spend much of the holidays with their own families because they are busy making sure the rest of us enjoy our break.


Congratulations to our Christmas Card competition winner

Iā€™m delighted to announce the winner of the annual Christmas Card competition that I run alongside Rachael Hamilton MSP.

The winning entry came from Blair Murphy, Primary 7 Wilton Primary School.

It will now be sent to the King, the Prime Minister, and lots of households across the Scottish Borders.

Well done to Blair for producing such a fantastic design and thank you to everybody who took part.
