Virtual Christmas 2020

Mayor's Christmas Card


The Mayor is having some difficulty this year designing his Christmas card and he is seeking the help of our children from across the Borough to get creative and come up with some fun, festive ideas!

The Mayor will select his favourite entry and this will be printed and used as the Council's Christmas card for 2020. The overall winner will also receive a £100 Amazon gift voucher from the Mayor and one year's MORE Family Leisure Membership.

In addition to the overall winner there will be an area winner announced at each of the Council's seven Christmas Light switch on ceremonies which will take place online this year. These winners will receive a fun filled stocking full of treats which will be delivered directly to their door by the main man himself 'Santa'  during the virtual switch on event.
