Mayor’s Christmas Card Winner Announced

Christmas Card Competition Winning Drawing 2020

The Mayor of Littlehampton Councillor David Chace is delighted to announce Lacey Newsom as the winner of the Civic Christmas Card competition. Lacey’s design which includes a portrait of the Mayor and a Christmas tree will be printed and as well as emailed to the Mayor’s contacts wishing them a Merry Christmas. The 9-year-old described her drawing as ‘the Mayor wishing everyone in Littlehampton a Merry Christmas’. Lacey won a Nintendo DS Lite for her efforts.

There were also two runners-up who received an Amazon Kids Tablet each.

7-year-old Evie James drew the things she likes in Littlehampton which included a picture of the Mayor riding on the Giant Observation Wheel and Freya Peachey, aged 5, drew a ‘Christmas explosion’ depicting what she thinks of when she hears the word Christmas.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions the presents were delivered in a safe manner to their homes instead of a presentation in the Mayor’s Parlour.

Speaking about the competition Town Mayor, Councillor David Chace, said: “I thank all the children who took part in this year’s competition. All the drawings were brilliantly done which made choosing a winner an arduous task. I am certain the winner’s design will put a smile on the recipients’ faces just like it did me.”
