Having mentioned the empty desks and all the staff who are now on holiday in my blog below, I wanted again to say a big thank you to all who will be working over the festive period.

I know that they were rightly highlighted in the joint message that the Lord Provost, the Council Leader and myself put onto the Zone earlier this week, but the work the Council does simply can’t stop entirely at a time when the vast majority of us are on holiday and as a result I think it is only right to underline my gratitude to those colleagues in various teams across the Council who will continue to provide key services over the coming ten days.
