East Berkshire’s MPs have shared their Christmas messages for constituents and residents as they settle in to enjoy the festive season.

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi, Slough

As we gather with our loved ones this Christmas, let's reflect on the values that define us as a community: compassion, solidarity and the spirit of giving. It's been a challenging year for many, but in true Slough fashion, we've stood together and supported one another.

Let's continue to look out for our neighbours, especially those in need, and spread kindness wherever we go. My best wishes to you for a blessed and merry Christmas, filled with love and goodwill.

Adam Afriyie, Windsor

Christmas in the Royal Borough is a magical time of year, lights twinkle on the streets and carols are sung, there’s ice skating at Alexandra Park, carriage rides in the Great Park, and Aladdin at the Theatre Royal. And I am sure that many of you, like me, will be venturing forth to buy last minute gifts at our fantastic local shops, to meet friends for Christmas drinks in our excellent pubs, and to take in the brilliant Windsor and Eton Living Advent.

But Christmas is also a time to pause, reflect, and enjoy time with family and friends. Like most of you I will be spending the holidays with my family, but I will also be thinking of those who are unable to do so.

I have always been proud to represent the Windsor Constituency in Parliament. The good spirit and generosity of our community is a testament to its strength and kindness. At this time of year, the work of our charities is more important than ever. Whether it’s giving to a food bank, supporting a community organisation, or simply helping out a neighbour in need, every little bit makes a difference. So please, if you are able to give a little this Christmas, a donation to a local charity can help to make a huge difference.

I would also like to take a moment to thank those working in our public services and who keep the show on the road: our doctors and nurses, hospice workers, teachers, firefighters, police and our brave armed forces. I wish you all a merry Christmas!

Theresa May, Maidenhead

I always enjoy joining in Christmas festivities across the constituency and would like to thank all those who give of their time to help others have an enjoyable and happy Christmas. I would also like to thank all those, particularly people working in our emergency services, who will be working over the Christmas period so that we can all enjoy the festivities with our friends and family.

I would like to wish all my constituents a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
