Children at Weare Academy First School were invited to design a Christmas card for the festive season.

Local electronics engineering business, Apuljack Engineering, ran the contest for the pupils.

The festive competition to make and design a greeting card has been held in conjunction with the business for five years.

Paul Wright, director of Apuljack Engineering, said: "We were delighted to have so many designs to choose from. All Apuljack Staff enjoyed voting for their favourite designs; it felt a bit like voting on Eurovision."

The winner was presented with a winner's certificate, printed mug and a gift voucher.

Headteacher of Weare Academy First School, Denise Mawdsley, said: "This is the 
fifth year of running the competition and we really appreciate the local business link with the school in making 
a real card for genuine purpose."
