REDDITCH MP, Rachel Maclean has launched her annual Christmas card design competition.

The competition is open to children up to the age of 16 living and attending a school in the Redditch constituency.

The winner’s card will be selected to go to all of the Redditch MP’s contacts this Christmas, and their family will be given the chance to visit the Palace of Westminster on one of Rachel Maclean's coach tours.

Rachel said: “I’m really looking forward to seeing this year’s designs. The more creative the better.

“It is lovely to receive a card from a talented young artist rather than a standard snowy picture of Parliament or a wintry Big Ben."

Due to the printing process, entries cannot have items attached to them like glitter and should be up to A4 in size, and have the artist’s full name, address, date of birth, and school on the reverse.

Entries should be sent to FREEPOST RACHEL MACLEAN MP, REDDITCH and no stamp is required.

The deadline for entries is 5.30pm on Monday, November 8.
