Luca's design takes a top place in MP's Christmas card contest

* Luca Burgoyne's entry in the card competition. 

An 11-year-old pupil of Ysgol Bryn Collen in Llangollen has come up with one of the top entries in the annual Christmas card competition run by Clwyd South MP Simon Baynes.

The design by Luca Burgoyne was one of two runners-up in the contest which Mr Baynes organised amongst schools across his constituency with the aim of producing his 2022 card.

The MP said judging the competition was a very difficult process due to the high standard of entries but, after a lot of thought, he has congratulated the winner Mila Griffiths (8) of Ysgol Penycae and the two runners-up, Luca Burgoyne Ysgol Bryn Collen and Darcy-May Anslow (6) of Rhosymedre Community Primary School.

Mila will receive a £20 book token and Luca and Darcy-May will each receive £10 book tokens.

The winning design will front Mr Baynes' Christmas card which will be sent to the Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and other public figures in Government and beyond, with the designs from the runners-up featured on the back of the card.

Mr Baynes said: “I was delighted to hold my annual Christmas card competition again this year and would like to take this opportunity to thank all the primary school pupils who took part and congratulate the winning entries. The standard of entries was extremely high and it was very difficult to decide on a winner.

"However, I would like to congratulate Mila Griffiths on her excellent design and also Luca Burgoyne and Darcy-May Anslow on being runners-up. I was extremely proud to see the wonderful artistic talent we have here in Clwyd South.”
