Liberal Democrat Environment Spokesperson Chris Huhne MP will be coming to Heywood on Saturday, 16th December to help pensioners in Roeacre Court with their Christmas celebrations. He will be attending Councillor Peter Rush's Annual Christmas gathering, last year's guest was none other than Jimmy Cricket and Chris will be coming to Heywood to talk about his "Green Christmas" idea.

The visit will take place at 5pm and will feature live entertainment, a buffet and a talk from one of Britain's top politicians. Peter said, "This is the man that many people have tipped to become the next leader of the Liberal Democrats and we're delighted that he has agreed to come to Heywood. The last year has been hugely successful for the Liberal Democrats and we're delighted to give something back to Heywood. We're hoping to choose another retirement home for next year's festivities. Unfortunately, it is for Roeacre Court Residents only and their guests, we are however looking to arrange another celebrity guest at a bigger venue in March."

Chris will be shown round the town and Peter and Heywood Lib Dem Campaigner Doreen Brophy-Lee will be talking about some of the key and the challenges ahead for Heywood. He will also be visiting residents on Millers brook Close, Wilton Grove, Railway Street and others affected by the flooding.

Chris Huhne MP said, "I am looking forward to my visit to Heywood, I have met Peter on a number of occasions and he has raised a number of key Heywood problems including the flooding disasters. The main part of my job is to campaign on key environmental issues including Climate Change. I will be coming to Heywood to tell everyone about our key environmental messages and how the people of Heywood can do their bit this Christmas to combat Climate Change. I hope that as many people in Heywood make this their New Year's Resolution."
