Nationals Member for Lismore Thomas George today paid tribute to all those living in his electorate for their support during 2015.

"It's been a very busy year and without the help and support of the good people of this region, we could not have achieved the results we did," he said.

Mr George said there were many highlights in 2015 including the announcement of $180 million to complete the Lismore Base Hospital redevelopment, the March election win and the buyback of local CSG PELs.

He said 2016 was set to be even busier again, particularly with the opening of the Hospitalís Stage 3a and carpark.

But with the festive season upon us, Mr George took this opportunity to wish everyone a happy and holy Christmas.

"Christmas is a wonderful time to relax and reflect with family and friends," he said.

"It is also a time to acknowledge the support and time given by the many emergency services personnel and volunteers who work so diligently to protect our area.

"We are lucky to live in such a glorious part of the world and as others come to visit and share in its beauty, please take extra care to ensure a safe holiday season, especially whilst out and about on the roads and in the water.

"May the peace and joy of Christmas be with you at this time and trust we will all be blessed with good health and happiness in 2016."
