Christmas Card Competition

It’s that time of year again…and I’ve already had an enquiry from one of our schools so it’s likely that the competition will be as keen as ever!

Our theme this year: Joy to the World

Closing date:  Friday 20th November

I’m looking forward to having another bumper year of entries… but not so much the very difficult job of selecting the winners.
