Picture gallery: Students’ Christmas designs unveiled

SOME of the most talented young artists in and around Weston have been battling it out in the annual competition to design a Christmas card for the town’s MP.

John Penrose offers schoolchildren the chance to showcase their talents by crafting a festive card for him to send to contacts.

This means the lucky winner will have their work seen throughout Britain’s corridors of power – with one card even likely to end up in the hands of Prime Minister David Cameron.

This year’s cards were designed around the theme of Weston’s ‘super’ new seafront, and the competition was won by Priory Community School pupil Kayleigh Phillips, who saw off some stiff competition from around the district.

John said: “I’m delighted that the enthusiasm for our competition is as strong as ever and I want to congratulate all the children who took part this year and were clearly inspired by our seafront theme.
