Tom wins by a (red) nose

WENTWORTH and Dearne MP John Healey chose a Christmas card designed by Tom Ashton, six, from The Hill Primary School in Thurnscoe, to send his festive greetings out to 1,500 people.

Tom’s card featured a big reindeer face with a glittery nose, with the message “Merry Christmas” emblazoned across the top.

Eleven runners-up of the card competition, whose designs also featured on the back of the Healeys’ card, were Olivia Mangham, Brogan Patterson, Sophie Fisher, Callum Howell, Catherine Maddison, Cody Feast, Jessica Stanton, Alex Hardman, Tamzin Element, Carys Kenmuir and Reanna Murray – all pupils at The Hill Primary School.

The superb designs from five to 10-year-olds included Santas, snowmen, stockings, bells and wintry scenes.

The youngest winners were Olivia and Brogan, who are both aged five.
