“Help deliver Christmas”, MP tells Pendle primary pupils

Pendle MP, Andrew Stephenson has called on local primary school children to enter a nationwide competition to design the Royal Mail’s official 2017 Christmas stamp.

Royal Mail has announced that their Christmas Stamp Competition is returning. It will be only the fourth time in history that the official Christmas stamp will have been designed by children. Mr Stephenson has written to primary schools head teachers, urging their pupils to take part.

The theme of this year’s Christmas competition is ‘What does the Christmas season mean to you?’ There will be one design selected for the 1st class stamp, and another chosen for the 2nd class. The competition is open to any pupils aged between 4-11 and the winning design must be approved by Her Majesty, The Queen.

Andrew Stephenson MP said, “This is a fantastic opportunity for children in Pendle to get involved in a national project, show the rest of the UK their talent and help deliver Christmas. 

“I look forward to seeing some wonderful entries done by pupils from our local schools. It would be great if someone from our area were to win the competition.”

Royal Mail have 8000 free packs to issue out to schools on a ‘first come first serve basis’, and schools can sign up via the Royal Mail website at royalmail.com/stampcompetition
