AN artistic 10-year-old boy from Windermere has triumphed in a competition open to nearly 400 children to create a Christmas card which will go to over 40,000 homes in South Lakeland.

Alfie Pimblett, from Goodly Dale Community Primary School in Windermere, won the star prize after a contest involving dozens of schools organised by Westmorland and Lonsdale MP, Tim Farron.

Alfie's creation has been made into the MP's official Christmas card which will go out to thousands of households.

Second place went to Louise Dewhurst, 10, from Crosscrake CE Primary school, and Lucie Cloke, eight, from Heron Hill Primary School, Kendal, in third.

The card will have Louise's and Lucie's designs on too. All participants have received certificates, with the winners and runners-up being awarded book tokens.

Mr Farron said: "I always have great fun choosing the winner of the competition but it is also difficult as there are so many brilliant designs."

"I really enjoyed meeting Alfie. I can’t wait for the rest of the South Lakes to see his brilliant and colourful design. I'd like to say a huge thank you to all the pupils who took part in the competition and wish all of them a very Merry Christmas."

Well done Alfie.
Lets not forget that we, the taxpayer, are paying for these to be sent out as Tim uses his self publicity fund, sorry communications allowance, that gets absorbed into his massive yearly expenses to send them out.
Merry Christmas!

Nice to see that people are quick to just moan though, especially when I think the cards are paid from party donations, not expenses? http://twitter.com/t
