What an incredible year it's been for people in Beverley and Holderness.
It's hard to remember that a year ago we were facing the omicron variant.
Now, for the first time since 2019, we can look forward to a normal Christmas once again.
That's because of the amazing effort by everyone who took up the booster keeping us safe as we enter and go through this winter.
It's been a really busy year for me visiting schools, community groups, speaking to people all across Beverley and Holderness.
There's been great news locally.
We've introduced tough new sentencing on hare coursing, something I've championed for a long time, and making sure that our farmers are not subject to this appalling behaviour by hare coursers on their land.
The largest offshore wind farm in the entire world, Hornsea 2, has opened off our coast, contributing renewable energy and contributing to our pathway to Net Zero.
We have a farming champion in the form of John Duggleby, someone who's worked tirelessly to fight for local farmers and indeed national agricultural interests over the years.
It's great to see him recognised. At Saltend, we've seen Equinor's plans for Hydrogen to Humber taking shape with government backing for the so-called East Coast Cluster that offers real opportunity to decarbonise local industry, protecting the jobs we've got from Scunthorpe Steel Works through to Drax or the refinery Phillips 66 on the other side of the Humber.
We could be a world leader in decarbonising that and then attracting new business, new jobs to our area.
Beverley Enterprise Centre, I'm delighted to say, has finally opened.
And I'd like to thank all of you who've been involved in taking in Ukrainian families, at least 30 of whom have come into local homes showing our solidarity with the people of Ukraine after the appalling invasion by Russia.
Now of course it's been a tough year, but people across Beverley and Holderness are doing amazing things for their friends and neighbours, including those, of course, from Ukraine, and it's always been my privilege to hear about them and celebrate what they are doing.
I'm always available to help anyone in Beverley and Holderness who needs assistance.
Just send me an e-mail if there's anything I may be able to help with.
But most of all I've got to say in front of this beautiful Christmas tree in Westminster Hall in Parliament, Happy Christmas to you, your friends and family and loved ones, and thank you for all that you've done to help the country and the area come through the last year.
