A WADEBRIDGE PRIMARY ACADEMY pupil has won the top prize in a competition to design MP Dan Rogerson's Christmas card.

Grace Pritchard's design features a surfing Father Christmas promising to "Deliver your presents dreckly."

The North Cornwall MP invited pupils in schools across North Cornwall to produce a 'Cornish Christmas' design, and the result was announced to Grace, aged 9, during an assembly at her school and she won a £25 book token, presented to her by Mr Rogerson.

Nicole, 9, from St Breock Primary School, and Matthew, 5, from Lewannick Community Primary School near Launceston, won second and third prizes. Both runner-up designs are reproduced on the back of the card. Mr Rogerson said: "The competition had a fantastic response and it was difficult to choose between the many different, high-quality designs. It's great that Grace's design will be featuring on my Christmas cards."
