The Chairman of Rochford District Council is asking primary school children, aged between 5 and 11 years old, from all over the district to design this year’s official ‘Chairman’s Civic Christmas Card’.
The Chairman of Rochford District Council, Cllr Mr Robin Dray, will choose the winning Christmas card design which will be sent to dignitaries around Essex. The winning designer will receive a £50 gift voucher, and runners up will receive £10 gift vouchers.
The theme is What does Christmas mean to you?, and designs should feature your local Christmas traditions.
Cllr Dray said: “I would like to invite all primary school aged children from around the Rochford District to design my 2020 Christmas Card.
“Why not take inspiration from previous years’ Christmas tree in Rochford’s Market Square, a grotto at the Rayleigh Windmill, or perhaps your local Light Switch-on or Christmas Market. This year is likely to be different to other years and is your opportunity to let your Christmas spirit shine as you tell us 'What does Christmas mean to you'?
“I know we have lots of talented young artists within our district so I’m looking forward to receiving lots of creative designs from budding artists!”
