Mark Launches Search for Christmas Card Design

MP Mark Tami and AM Carl Sargeant have launched their search for a Christmas card design.

Mr Tami and Mr Sargeant are inviting all primary, junior, infant and special school children in Alyn and Deeside to enter the competition.

The best design will be used as their official 2009 card, which will be sent to hundreds of people, including the Prime Minister.

Mr Tami said: “This is the eight year that the competition has been held and in that time more than 7,000 youngsters have participated.

“The standard of entries is always sky-high and I am confident this year will see some outstanding designs.”

Mr Sargeant added: “I am hoping we will have more pupils than ever take part in the competition.

“In the past we have had the support of excellent local companies, including UPM Shotton Paper and Toyota. They have helped to make the competition a major success.”
