Llangollen youngsters are winners in MP's Christmas card design competition

* The winning card design by Chloe Williams of Ysgol Gymraeg Y Gwernant.  

* Runner-up designs by Taylor Butterton, Lola Penzer, Kacey Williams, Isabella Hardy Clarke and Amelia Dulson.  

Talented Chloe Williams, a 10-year-old pupil of Ysgol Gymraeg Y Gwernant, has won the competition to design of the official Christmas card being sent by Clwyd South MP Simon Baynes. 

One of the runners-up was Taylor Butterton (four) from Ysgol Bryn Collen. 

After launching the annual contest in September , Mr Baynes received a large number of pictures from primary school pupils across Clwyd South who were excited to showcase their artistic talents. 

He said judging the competition had been very difficult due to the high standard of entries. 

After finalising his choice, he has now congratulated the winner, Chloe Williams from Ysgol Gymraeg Y Gwernant on her excellent design. 

Alongside Chloe, the five runners-up were announced, in age order, as Taylor Butterton (four) from Ysgol Bryn Collen, Lola Penzer (six) from Rhosymedre CP School, Kacey Williams (eight) from Ysgol Penycae, Isabella Hardy Clarke (10) from Froncysyllte CP School and Amelia Dulson (10) from Bronington VA School. 

Chloe will receive a £20 book token and the runners-up will each receive £10 book tokens. 

The winning design will feature on the front of Mr Baynes’s Christmas card which will be sent to the Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak MP, 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. I would like to congratulate the winner Chloe Williams on her excellent design as well as runners-up, Taylor Butterton, Lola Penzer, Kacey Williams, Isabella Hardy Clarke and Amelia Dulson on their fantastic entries. I was extremely proud to see the wonderful artistic talent we have here in Clwyd South.”
