A Moray MP congratulated the winner of his Christmas card competition during a school visit yesterday and presented the young pupil with a prize.

Conservative Douglas Ross attended the Portgordon Primary School assembly to meet Arwen Mitchell, whose festive entry included a sheep, cow and Dalmation wearing Santa hats.

The annnual competition encourages all local primary school pupils to take part in designing a 2017 Christmas card.

Mr Ross also visited the schools of the runners-up, presenting prizes to Lauren Brown from Applegrove Primary School, Cailin McMurdo from Aberlour Primary School and Scott Davidson from Cullen Primary School.

He said: “I was absolutely delighted with the volume of entries and the imagination shown by the children in their designs.

“To be honest I found it extremely difficult to pick just one, but someone had to win and I was delighted to be able to present Arwen with a television, along with some festive shortbread and a mug featuring her design of animals in a festive scene.”

The politician said the winning design would now feature as the front of his official Christmas card.

He added: “The four designs which feature on my card come from all parts of Moray and included local iconic scenes, the children’s own images from Christmas and the winning design even included a Dalmatian, Arwen must have known I had a soft spot for them.

“I’m very grateful to all the pupils for taking part in the competition and their excellent designs and I would also like to thank all the sponsors who generously supported the competition.”
