Mayor launches annual Christmas card design competition

Father Christmas

With just 68 days – and counting – until Christmas, Mayor Dave Hodgson has launched a competition to design his official 2022 festive card.

Mayor Dave has written to all primary schools in the Borough and to PLACE (Parent-led and community-based education) inviting pupils submit their seasonal designs.

Mayor Dave said: “Last year we had lots of fantastic pictures from children across the Borough and I enjoyed seeing them all, choosing a winner was particularly hard.

“I look forward to seeing this year’s entries.”

How to enter

Entries should be on an A4 piece of paper created using paint, crayons or felt-tip pens. Drawings that contain bright colours will make especially good designs.

When the children have finished their drawings, please write the following details on the back of each picture: name, age, class and school name. Home-schooled children are also welcome to join in and put ‘home-schooled’ instead of the class and school name.

The closing date to receive the entries is Friday 11 November 2022.

Entries should be sent to Mayor Dave Hodgson, Bedford Borough Council, Cauldwell Street, Bedford, MK42 9AP.
