The following letter appeared in today's Morley Observer and Advertiser:
Best wishes to the brave
We would like to wish all your readers a very merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year.
We would also like to take this opportunity to send our best wishes to our brave servicemen and women serving in war zones overseas, as well as to their families back home.
Especially in light of the terrible news of the last week we would also like to send our deepest sympathies to the families of those whose loved ones will not be returning.
We believe it is important that they know we are thinking of them, particularly at this time of the year.
Councillors Chris & Joanna Beverley
Morley South/Elmfield ward
