Christmas Card Competition

We’re holding a Christmas Card competition for local children aged pre-school, primary and secondary school age. There will be four categories: Pre-school, KS1, KS2 and KS3.

We’d like your child to create their best Christmas card design for the theme ‘Christmas in Helsby’. We’ll be sharing some of the designs on our website and Facebook and Twitter pages.

The four winning designs will be professionally printed as Christmas cards and sold locally. There will also be prizes for the winners!
