MP Presents Award to Winner of Christmas Card Design Competition
Cotswolds MP Geoffrey Clifton-Brown visited Bourton-on-the-Water Primary School last Friday (10 December 2010) to present a gift voucher during the school’s assembly to Megan Butler, aged 10, for designing the MP’s Christmas Card.
Mr Clifton-Brown visited the school earlier in the year and subsequently contacted the Headteacher of the school, Mr John Jones, to ask if his pupils would be able to help design a card and was delighted with the number of students who took part and the quality of the entries.
The winning design was selected personally by Mr Clifton-Brown who then presented Megan with her prize.
Speaking afterwards Mr Clifton-Brown said, “I am exceedingly grateful to the Headteacher and staff at Bourton Country Primary School for their assistance in making this competition possible. It has been a lot of fun putting this competition together and the large numberchildren who entered produced a remarkable collection of bright and colourful designs, which made picking a winner very difficult. Megan’s drawing is particularly merry and really brings some extra seasonal joyfulness to the card.”
