The Mayor of Littlehampton Councillor Jill Long invites the young people of Littlehampton aged 4 to 11 years to design the Council’s Civic 2021 Christmas Card. The design will be turned into an e-card, saving on printing and postage, a small but important contribution to lowering carbon footprint. 

In addition to winning a £50 voucher, the winner will be invited to join the Mayor on stage to switch on this year’s Christmas Illuminations on Saturday 19 November. 

Speaking about the competition Town Mayor, Councillor Jill Long, said: “It may seem early to be thinking about Christmas cards but the most magical day of the year is just around the corner. It has become a tradition for the Mayor’s Christmas card which is sent to the many wonderful organisations and Mayors of neighbouring Towns to be drawn by a child. This year we are making it even more fun by inviting the winner to join me on stage to switch on the Christmas lights and kick start the festive season in Littlehampton.” 

Youngsters have until Monday 31 October to submit their entry which must include the words “Merry Christmas” and be drawn or painted in bold colours on an A4 sheet, it can be landscape or portrait. All entries must be accompanied by a completed entry form available from the Town Council’s website.
