I've got a letter from Santa Claus asking to hear from all the girls and boys in and around Tamworth asking what they would like for Christmas. But be quick! In order to guarantee a response from him letters must be sent by 7th December to Santa's Grotto, Reindeerland, XM4 5HQ.
Wow what a response! Thank you to all the primary schools around Tamworth that have taken part in my Christmas card competition this year. I've received over 150 entries from pupils and can't wait to go through them all and select the best design.
Chris has welcomed figures released this week by the Office for National Statistics showing that Tamworth still has a below average unemployment claimant count when compared to the rest of the United Kingdom.
