The Mayor commented: “We had 359 entries this year, the most we have ever had, so we had a very tough decision choosing the winner and runners up.  I want to thank all the children for taking the time to send in all their lovely pictures.  They really did brighten up our day.”

The winning picture will be used on the front of the Mayor’s Christmas card for 2020.  The winner and runners up will all receive a hamper, courtesy of Morrison’s, and the children will also feature in the Town Council’s Virtual Christmas Festival on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th November; you will have to tune in to see how!
