launches 'Kingston & Surbiton Christmas 2000'
Christmas card competition
Local MP, Edward Davey,
has just launched an exciting new competition for the
Borough's school children. The aim of the competition is
for local children to produce a picture depicting a
typical Christmas in Kingston & Surbiton.
The overall winner's design will be made into his
parliamentary Christmas 2000 cards which are seen by 100s
of people throughout the Royal Borough, Westminster and
the wider world.
There are three age groups 4-6 years, 7-10 and 11-15
years and entrants have the chance of winning exciting
prizes provided by Surbiton-based "Childhood
Discoveries" and Regency Bookshop.
All entries will be judged by an independent panel led by
Robin Hutchinson (Urban Arts & Kingston Theatre
Trust). All local schools in the constituency have
been invited to take part and entries are due to be
returned to Edward Davey by 23rd October 2000.
Edward Davey said,
send out stuffy designs thought up in a studio somewhere,
I thought sending out local children's' designs would be
far more fun."
"From my visits to local schools, it is clear there
are plenty of budding young artists out there and I am
sure they will rise to this challenge."
"I am grateful to local businesses - Childhood
Discoveries and Surbiton's Regency Bookshop for
sponsoring the children's prizes."
