Children's Christmas card designs are tree-mendous!

  • Joshua's Christmas tree design features on WLBC Christmas card
  • Leader of Council hails talented children of the Borough
  • Children have VIP zoom call with Mayor


Well done to all the talented primary school pupils in West Lancashire who sent us their fantastic designs for our Christmas card competition.

We had 86 entries from children all over the Borough and our judging panel had a very difficult job to decide on the winner.

After carefully looking over all the designs they chose the Christmas tree by Joshua Crompton, from Holland Moor Primary School as the winner. The runners up were Elizabeth Jackson, also from Holland Moor Primary School, and Daniela Narvaisa, from Woodland Community Primary School.

Councillor Ian Moran, Leader of West Lancashire Borough Council, came up with the theme of 'What Christmas means to me' for the competition.

He said: "We want to thank all the children who sent in entries and we hope our competition spread some Christmas cheer after a difficult year. There were so many terrific designs and we clearly have a lot of talented and creative children in West Lancashire."

Joshua's winning design features on the Council's official Christmas Card sent to dignitaries as well as our friends and partners across the Borough.

All three children also enjoyed a VIP zoom call with Mayor of West Lancashire, Councillor Gordon Johnson.

Mr Beale, Headteacher at Holland Moor Primary said: " Our children really enjoyed taking part in this seasonal competition. They produced some amazing entries but Joshua’s and Elizabeth’s were exceptional. Their cards were a real festive celebration of this important time of year.

Woodland Community Primary School Headteacher Mr Millar added: "Well done to Daniela, she loves drawing and art and this shows that she has talent too. It's a great card and we are very proud of her."
