Pupils from a Rotherham school put pen, pencil, paint and glue to paper to design the perfect Christmas card
Councillor Mahroof Hussain asked pupils at Broom Valley Community School to design this years "One Town, One Community" Christmas card and, after dozens of entries and an hour deliberating, the three winners were chosen.
The successful artists, 10 year old Aqsa Aslam, whose festive drawing will take centre stage on the front of the card, and both Saalikah Khaliq and Ellie Vicerage, both 5, whose designs will feature on the rear of the card, we're given the good news by Head Teacher David Saunders, Head Teacher and Deputy Head Teacher Helen Round.
After helping to select the winning designs, Councillor Hussain, who is Councillor for the Boston Castle ward which the school falls under, congratulated the three talented artists and set about transforming them into cards.
Councillor Hussain said: "I'd like to thank all the teachers and staff at Broom Valley Community School for their amazing designs. Each and every picture was fantastic and I wish I could have used them all. After a lot of consideration we decided on the three designs and I have to say they are fantastic. The kids have put a great deal of energy and imagination into the designs and I can't wait to get them turned into Christmas cards.
"This has really shown the fantastic level of creativity we have in the borough. All the pupils are a credit to their school. I'd like to wish them all, and everyone else, a very Happy Christmas."
