LOCAL MP Angela Rayner has chosen her 2016 Christmas card winner from more than 500 entries submitted by local school children.
The winner was 10-year-old Summer Hickman (right) from Holden Clough Primary School in St Albans Avenue for her Santa and his sledge silhouette.
It will now go on the front of Angela’s annual Christmas card which the MP sends to Parliamentary and Labour Party colleagues, relatives, friends and constituents.
Angela popped into Holden Clough to present Summer with a framed copy of her winning design, a special certificate and £10 gift voucher.
Angela said: “We had a brilliant response to the competition and the entries were of a really high standard.
“But Summer’s design stood out to me because it was so eye-catching and unusual.”
Second place went to Faith Nolan (left), from Fairfield Road primary School, in Droylsden, and third place went to Abigail Bird (right below) from St Christopher’s RC primary in Ashton.
Angela presented both with their framed design, certificate and a selection box.
