A Christmas Card Competition that runs annually in the constituency of Carshalton and Wallington has found its latest winner, Maisie Sherriff of St Mary's Junior School, who designed a picture of Father Christmas hanging off the hour hand on the Big Ben tower.

Tom Brake, MP for Carshalton and Wallington, runs the local competition, and chose the winner from a multitude of entries from children in ten schools across the constituency.

Tom commented: "Maisie's card was absolutely wonderful; it combined obvious artistic talent with a fun design. This card will now be sent out to thousands of constituents, and Maisie will of course be given some of the cards to send to her own friends."

The annual competition is something that Tom runs to try and encourage children to be creative and get involved in fun extra-curricular activities such as art or play. Tom is a great supporter of play, on the 21st November, Tom opened a new play facility in Culvers House Primary School, on a previously derelict site, that will help to support clubs for young children who otherwise may not have had the opportunity to join such clubs.

Maisie Sherriff was the overall winner, as well as the winner in the Year 3 to Year 6 catergory. William Driscoll from All Saints C of E Primary School was the winner in the reception to Year 2 category.
