Festive greetings to our readers

Argyll and Bute Provost Len Scoullar

This year’s festive season is well under way. All across Argyll and Bute preparations have been in hand for celebrations, for festivities and for spending time together with loved ones after a very busy few weeks of activity.

Despite all that busyness, it is a time which can bring much joy and happiness, and I hope also that for everyone it brings even just a little welcome peace and quiet after a challenging year.

There are those for whom the festive season is less joyful, though, for many different and often difficult reasons; and, as always, my thoughts and prayers are with them at this time especially, in the hope that they too will find some comfort and peace.

Inevitably over the festive season, as each year draws to a close, amid busy times we may take a moment to reflect on the months just passed. 2016 has been a year of much change and many challenges; but as we reflect on that, we can also take comfort on the fact that the New Year ahead offers us fresh hope, a new start and an opportunity to make changes for the better wherever and however we can.

At this special time I wish everyone across Argyll and Bute the best possible Christmas and a peaceful and prosperous New Year.
