James Allison from Hollymount School in Worcester has beaten off competition from across the city to design the Mayor’s Christmas card.
The seven-year-old’s colourful drawing – showing Santa Claus flying over the Guildhall with his reindeer – was chosen as the winner in this year’s primary school competition to design the Mayor’s festive greetings card.
The Hollymount School pupil’s winning entry has been printed on around 500 cards which have been sent to schools, charities, organisations, clubs and businesses across Worcester.
The Mayor, Councillor Allah Ditta, said: “James’s design captured many of the Guildhall’s most striking features extremely well.
“We will have to see if enough councillors have behaved themselves for Santa Claus to make a special visit there this Christmas!”
James’s success is also good news for his school, which wins a £50 gift voucher for art materials.
