The Wolverhampton North East MP has written to all primary schools in her constituency, urging them to get creative and design a card illustrating what Christmas means to them.

Last year’s winner, Isabelle Moorhouse from Elston Hall Primary School, saw her design sent to hundreds of people across the country.

The deadline for entries is November 2, with the MP promising to visit the successful schools to personally present the winners with a special prize.

Ms Reynolds said: “Every year I run a Christmas card competition, and the standard gets higher and higher every time.

"The winning design is sent to hundreds of people across my constituency and across the country, so it is an opportunity to get your design seen by all sorts of people.

“I know Christmas seems to come earlier every year, but with time needed to choose the winners and get them printed, schools have until November 2 to get their designs back to me.

"I’m usually sent hundreds of entries, and judging the best ones is always difficult, but I can’t wait to see what the children of Wolverhampton have in store.”
