Christmas Card from Plumpton School
I am delighted to announce a Plumpton School pupil as the winning designer of my first constituency Christmas card, to be sent all over Cumbria and the UK.
Six-year-old Ellie Morton was chosen as the winner of a local competition, and will enjoy a trip to London to visit the Houses of Parliament accompanied by her parents and a friend. I am also going to treat Plumpton School to a party.
Ellie’s striking design of crayon and watercolour angels will be printed at local Penrith company, Reeds. I would like to thank all of the local schools who took part in my competition. I was delighted to receive some really wonderful entries, from collages to watercolours to crayon and chalk designs. It was difficult to choose just one winner, but Ellie’s painting of smiling angels against a blue night sky was my outright favourite. She is a very talented young artist, and I shall look forward to showing her some of the incredible works of art on display in the Houses of Parliament when she comes to visit.
