Council Leaders Christmas card

Published: 16/12/2016

A local school pupil has won a competition to have her artwork used on the official Christmas card sent out by the Leader of Flintshire County Council. Every year Councillor Aaron Shotton invites schoolchildren to draw a seasonal picture with the winning design being printed professionally. This year it was the turn of pupils from Ysgol Bryn Deva, Connahs Quay and Councillor Shotton visited the school to meet some of those who took part in the competition which was won by Year 5 pupil Jessica Lyons. Jessica receives tickets for the Aladdin pantomime and the ice rink at Theatr Clwyd. Runners up were Vickie Allen and Teodora Bolmaga, also in Year 5. Councillor Shotton said: As usual, the standard was very high and I was very impressed with the creativity of all the designs. The pupils worked really hard and it was very difficult to choose a winner. The card is sent out to all Councillors and Government representatives including the First Minister for Wales, Carwyn Jones AM.
