- Following the enormous success of Alexander Stafford’s first ever Rother Valley Christmas Card competition last year, the Rother Valley MP will be bringing back the opportunity for local children to design his Christmas card
- The winning design will once again be printed and sent out across Rother Valley and even to the Prime Minister himself, with 2 highly commended entrants being featured elsewhere on the card
- The deadline for entries is 1st November 2021 and the winner, runner up and highly commended entries being announced shortly thereafter
Rother Valley MP Alexander Stafford has announced that, by popular demand, his Christmas Card Competition has returned, and he invites all children in Rother Valley, aged 11 and under, to take part.
The winning design will be printed on the front of the card that Alexander will send this Christmas, to residents, businesses and organisations across Rother Valley and even to the Prime Minister himself.
Children wishing to take part should submit their designs on A4 white paper and work with coloured pencil, pen or paint only. No glitter please!
All entries must include, on the back, the child’s name, school and school year group. If not entering through a school, parent’s address and contact details should be included. Parents should be aware that the winners will have these details printed on the card, should they win.
Completed entries should be sent via post to Alexander’s constituency office at 39 Laughton Road, Dinnington, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, S25 2PN.
The deadline for receiving entries is Monday 1st November and the winner, runner-up and highly commended entrant will be contacted shortly after. Unfortunately, we will not be able to return original artwork.
Commenting, Alexander Stafford MP said:
“I am delighted and very excited to be re-launching my Christmas Card Competition for 2021. Last year, it proved so successful and I had a huge number of fantastic designs, so I can’t wait to see what the talented youngsters of Rother Valley design this year.”
“The Prime Minister was very taken with the card I sent last year and I know he will be looking forward to receiving the winning design from Rother Valley again this year.”
“I know it might seem a little early to be thinking about Christmas, but I hope residents will understand. My wife and I are expecting a new baby this December and I will need plenty of time to turn things around. “
