christmas card competition
Rory has written to all primary schools in his constituency asking pupils to design a Christmas card which reflects the spirit of Christmas in Cumbria. Following on from the success of last year’s competition – which was won by Ellie Morton of Plumpton Primary School – Rory will once again choose a winning design from submissions by school-children from across the constituency, which will be sent out around the constituency and nationally. Schools are invited to choose their own two best designs that they would like to be entered into the competition. The youngster who produces this year’s winning design will win a £50 book token from new Penrith bookshop, Wordsworth’s. The competition closes on Friday 18th November 2011. The winner will be
announced on Monday 28th November.
Rory said: “I am delighted that this time of year has come around again. I really enjoyed looking at last year’s entries and look forward to seeing what this year’s artists have to offer. The standards were so high that it was of course difficult to pick a winner, but Ellie’s design from last year received lots of admiring comments from those who received the card. It is also a real pleasure to be supporting Penrith’s new bookshop, Wordsworth’s, now that Penrith has very sadly lost the Bluebell Bookshop.”
