Last week, local MP Marion Fellows awarded the winners of her Motherwell and Wishaw constituency Christmas card competition with their prizes.

All schools across the constituency were encouraged to take part with hundreds of entries flooding in over November and December.

A winner from each age group was chosen with one from the Infants (P1-3), Juniors (P4-5) and Seniors (P6-7).

The winners were:
Infants – Paige Simpson from St Aidan’s Primary.
Juniors – Casey Thomson from Wishaw Academy Primary.
Seniors – Eva Marie McMahon – St Ignatius Primary.

Winners were awarded a framed print of their winning entry, a bundle of Christmas cards and mug featuring their design, and a £25 cinema gift card.

Commenting, Mrs Fellows said:

A big well done to all the boys and girls who took part to show off their artistic skills and a special well done to those who won. Motherwell and Wishaw definitely has some budding Banksys and future Frida Kahlos.

Christmas is a great time to get children to move away from a screen and put some pen to paper and show off their creative talents.

It’s also a great time to see a Christmas film and I’m sure they’ll enjoy their day out with a loved one.

I hope that all the participants and their families have a marvellous Christmas and a happy Hogmanay.
