With only a week to go in my annual Christmas card competition, I've already received some fantastic designs from schools across South Northamptonshire! Please do keep sending me your entries and I look forward to picking the winner. You can read a copy of my letter to our local schools below.
Welcome back! I do hope you and your staff have had a great summer break and are ready for the new academic year. As ever, if an opportunity arises for me to pay a visit, please don't hesitate to let my office know and I will do my best to find a suitable date.
Following a successful competition last year with lots of wonderful entries, I have again decided to run the Christmas card competition amongst Primary Schools in South Northamptonshire, and would be delighted if any of your students would like to participate. In the past, schools have held their own contest to select who should represent the school in the final round, however, if you prefer to send in a few entries that is fine, too.
The deadline for submissions will be Friday 11th November in order to give my team and me the chance to judge the winner and runners-up in time to get the cards printed. I would be grateful if all entries could be posted to my Constituency office at:
The Rt Hon. Andrea Leadsom MP
1, 138 Watling Street East
As well as being printed on my own Christmas cards, the winning pictures will also be displayed on my website and the winning student, together with a parent, will be invited to visit me at the House of Commons for tea.
I am looking forward to seeing your students' work!
