Member of the Senedd for Delyn, Hannah Blythyn has thanked pupils from five schools across the constituency for their entries into her annual Christmas card competition. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Ms Blythyn said: “I had more entries this year from ever before which made the task of choosing a winner even harder – although it is one of my favourite jobs of the year. It’s great to see how much creativity our students have.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Pupils from Ysgol Pen Coch, Argoed High School, Ysgol Merllyn, Trelawnyd VA School and Ysgol Croes Atti entered the competition which was sponsored thanks to a local manufacturing firm, Nice-Pak, which is based in Flint. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The winner was 10-year-old Nancy Thomas from Ysgol Pen Coch. Ms Blythyn said: “I chose Nancy’s design for its sense of fun and simplicity. It was great to be able to present her with a framed image of her design at the school.  ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Her design will now be winging its way to constituents, colleagues and friends across Flintshire, Wales and beyond.  ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Congratulations to the runners’ up in the competition:  Manon Butler, Year 8, from Argoed High School; Mason, a Year 6 pupil from Ysgol Merllyn; nine-year-old Charlotte Platts from Trelawnyd VA School and Year 5 pupil Kiera Cliff from Ysgol Croes Atti.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Alison Roberts, CSR and Communications Manager from Nice-Pak said: “Nice-Pak are happy to sponsor such a worthwhile local initiative – the  very jolly  reindeer has been sent to all our customers, who include large supermarkets. It was great to meet Nancy and some of the other entrants.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
