Cllr Jan Cover, Town Mayor of Thatcham sends out a lot of Christmas cards each year, including one to Her Majesty the Queen! This year she challenges the community to enter her Design the Mayor’s Christmas Card Competition and design the cards that she will send out.

There are three categories: Under 11s, aged 11-18, aged 18 and over, and the winner from each category will be printed for the Mayor to use. Each winner will receive a prize as well as a pack of cards with their very own design on.

Madam Mayor hopes that people will be inspired to get their creative juices going and come up with a design of what the festive season means to them. It could feature local scenes, or nature, or traditional Christmas adornments- all designs will be considered and the competition is open to all.

It will be quite an accolade to have your design used by the Mayor and who knows perhaps yours will be sent to the Queen!

To enter please email your design, minimum size of A5, maximum size of A3 to enquiries@thatchamtowncouncil.gov.uk or post to Thatcham Town Council, Brownsfield Road, Thatcham RG18 3HF by Sunday 25th November, stating your name, contact details which age category you are entering.

 

See your Christmas creation in print!
