VICTORIA PRENTIS MP ANNOUCES THE WINNER OF HER CHRISTMAS CARD COMPETITION

2017 Christmas card

This autumn, Victoria Prentis MP ran a competition for local schoolchildren to design her Christmas card. It has proved a popular initiative since she was first elected in 2015, and this year’s theme was shepherds.

There were some high quality entries, but the eventual winner was Ethan Osborne from Bure Park Primary School for his silhouette design. The card will now be sent out to the over 250 people on Victoria’s Christmas card list. She visited Ethan at school on Monday 27 November to present him with copies of his cards and some gifts from the House of Commons. He will be visiting the Houses of Parliament early next year with his family.

Victoria commented: ‘I love running my Christmas card competition every year, and we always have some brilliant entries. Ethan’s really stood out for his clever use of the silhouette design. It’s a lovely piece of artwork and the cards look fantastic this year – I am sure everyone on my list will be very impressed!’

Ethan said: ‘I really enjoyed meeting Victoria at school and am looking forward to visiting the Houses of Parliament. I liked designing my card and was very excited that I won. I would recommend everyone to take part next year!’
