A DELIGHTFUL festive scene featuring Kendal Library was the winner in South Lakeland District Council’s annual Christmas card competition.

Ten-year-old Norah created the winning entry which SLDC chairman, Councillor Stephen Coleman will send out to businesses and organisations in South Lakeland as his official 2019 Christmas card.

Aimee and Jackson, both also aged 10, were the runners-up in the competition open to pupils at St Thomas’s CofE Primary School in Kendal, which is in Cllr Coleman’s ward.

Among the prizes Norah, Aimee and Jackson received were printed cards featuring their designs to use themselves.

Cllr Coleman expects to send out around 200 of his official, signed Christmas cards.

He said: “It was lovely to see so many children from St Thomas’s taking part. There were lots of tremendous designs which showed a lot of artistic skill. Choosing just one winner and two runners-up was a very difficult task but the judging process certainly put me in the festive spirit.

“Norah’s entry was a worthy winner and I am delighted to be able to use it on my official Christmas cards for this year.”
