Into 2015

With Twelfth Night now having been and gone I think we can say that the festive holiday period is now behind us and a new year has now begun.

Like the vast majority of Council colleagues I returned to work yesterday and I wanted to take the opportunity in this first short message of the new year to welcome everyone back, to once again thank those team members who continued to provide Council services when others were on holiday and to say how much I’m looking forward to working with you on what is bound to be another packed year of service development and delivery for the people of Aberdeen.

As I mentioned before Christmas I am committing time in the diary to getting out and about throughout the year to visit teams to find out from them about the services we provide to individuals, families and communities across the different parts of the City.  Hopefully I will have the opportunity to meet you and your colleagues on one of these visits, but in the meantime I wish you a happy and successful 2015.
