10-year-old from Shackleton Primary wins Mayor’s Christmas card competition


After choosing from over 400 entries, Mayor Dave Hodgson has today announced the winner of his Christmas card competition.

Children from across the Borough sent in entries, with many schools and home-schooled children also taking part.

Featuring a traditional Christmas tree, the winning design was by Amelia from Shackleton Primary. At the top of the tree, Amelia had drawn a globe and shared a message of kindness – something that has been even more important over the last year.

The runners-up were Liyah from Camestone School with a snowman design and Ibrahim from Brickhill Primary School with a cracker design.

Mayor Dave said: “Congratulations to Amelia, Liyah and Ibrahim. I was impressed with all the entries and thank everyone who sent me their designs.”

A selection of the designs is on display in the Howard Centre in the run-up to Christmas.
