Entries have started to arrive for Prime Minister Theresa May's Christmas card competition.
The MP for Maidenhead and Twyford wants children from her constituency to design her Christmas card and will pick three festive designs, which should be on the theme of ‘Christmas at Downing Street’.
The competition, a long-standing tradition between the Advertiser and Mrs May, is open to children aged 11 and under, who live in her Maidenhead and Twyford constituency.
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 and preferably done in 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.
Judging will take place and the winners will be announced shortly afterwards.
