Andrew Mitchell has carried out his annual Christmas tour to say “thank you” to the emergency services throughout Sutton Coldfield for all of the work they do to support the Royal Town of Sutton Coldfield over the year.
Starting with the Postal Sorting Office, the Manager Gary Pearsall received Andrew Mitchell. Andrew thanked all the postmen and women for ensuring that Suttonians received all their festive letters and parcels over the Christmas period.
He then toured Good Hope Hospital with the Chief Executive, David Rosser and Head of Nursing Lynne Fisher, meeting staff and patients, especially thanking those who would be on duty over Christmas and the New Year.
Our MP’s next visit was the Sutton Coldfield police station where met Chief Inspector Richard Harris, and toured the station thanking Sutton’s police for keeping Sutton Coldfield and his constituents safe over the previous year, and particularly for their work over the holiday season.
The final port of call was Sutton’s fire station, where Andrew met the Station Commander Paul Johnson and the Duty Watch and thanked them for protecting Suttonians.
Speaking after the visits Andrew said:
“On behalf of everyone in the Royal Town, I want to thank those who work hard over the festive period to keep us safe and provide essential services while the rest of us are relaxing. I am so grateful for their dedication and professionalism.”
