THE FESTIVE season brought out the creative side of one youngster who won a competition for designing a cracking Christmas card.

Northfield Primary School pupil Cian-Ross McGeown used lots of glitter and tissue paper to make a Christmas tree even Father Christmas would be proud of.

He was given a game of Monopoly and a book voucher by Wakefield And District Housing (WDH) who organised the competition in schools across the district.

The seven-year-old’s winning design was chosen out of 200 entries and can be seen on the WDH website.

It also features on the front cover of the winter edition of WDH News – WDH’s quarterly newsletter which is sent to 31,000 homes across the district.

He said: “I’m really happy to win. I can’t wait to see it on the front cover of the newsletter.”

Runner-up positions went to Ellie O’Shaughnessy and Charlie Carrington, both 10, who received a certificate and a £10 W H Smith voucher.

They were given the prizes at a special assembly at Havercroft Junior and Infant School last month.
