05 Dec Here is what Stephen Metcalfe MP asks of Father Christmas
Stephen Metcalfe, Member of Parliament for South Basildon & East Thurrock, congratulated all those involved in organizing the excellent Horndon-on-the Hill Christmas Market which he attended last weekend.
Stephen said: “To mark that start of the festive month, I joined local businesses, arts and craft stall holders and local charities at the Christmas market to spread Christmas cheer and support our local community.”
The highlight of the day however was when Stephen got the chance to meet Mr Father Christmas himself. Asked what he wanted for Christmas, Stephen said: “A quieter year than 2017!”
Stephen added: “I never cease to be amazed by the strength of the community spirt that exists across Thurrock and Basildon and I hope that I will be able to support that spirit for years to come.”
