As I head back from Parliament for Christmas I wanted to share with you the beautiful Christmas Tree on display in Palace Yard, close to Big Ben. Merry Christmas!

It was good to have the opportunity of meeting The Speaker of the House before I headed back too, to show him some of the fantastic tree decorations made by Cooper And Jordan School that were on my Democracy themed Christmas tree at Aldridge Methodist Church during the recent Christmas Tree Festival. I also delivered my Christmas Card to him – with the beautiful image of ‘A Cold Winter’s Day’ – the winning entry in my Christmas Card Competition this year.
