Children asked to design Prime Minister Theresa May's Christmas cards

Staff reporter

While the political upheaval in the months since the EU referendum has seen Theresa May become Prime Minister, some things haven't changed.

The MP for Maidenhead and Twyford might be sharing the international political stage with the most powerful leaders in the world - but she still wants children from her constituency to design her Christmas card.

The only difference this year is Mrs May wants to pick three festive designs for different Christmas cards, all on the theme of 'Christmas at Downing Street'.

The competition  - a longstanding tradition between the Advertiser and Mrs May - is open to children aged 11 and under, who must live in her Maidenhead and Twyford constituency.

The Prime Minister said: "Choosing my annual Christmas card is one of the highlights of the year as we always get such a brilliant selection of designs.

"This year I expect to be sending even more cards than usual, so I’ll be selecting three different designs to use, and I’m looking forward to what ideas everyone will come up with.”

Entries for the competition should be marked ‘Theresa May’s Christmas Card Competition’ and sent to Maidenhead Advertiser, 48 Bell Street, Maidenhead, SL6 1HX.

The suggested size is A5. Designs need to be bold and bright, preferably using paint, felt tips or crayons as coloured pencils do not reproduce well when printed.

Two-dimensional designs are preferred as glitter and cotton wool do not work when printed.

Entries should also include the name, age and school or organisation (such as a cub or brownie pack) of the entrant and a daytime contact number for their parent or guardian.

The closing date for entries is Thursday, October 20, and judging will take place and the winners announced shortly afterwards.
