Royal Mail’s ‘Design a Christmas Stamp’ Competition


I was delighted to join pupils at St Laurence Church Junior School on Monday as they designed their pictures for Royal Mail’s 2013 Christmas Stamp competition. An unusual time of year to be thinking about Christmas! But a fantastic opportunity for pupils in my constituency and across the country to take part in such a rare opportunity to design a picture which could feature on the stamps we’ll all be using at Christmas. I have seen some excellent designs – and I hope Royal Mail will be as impressed as I have been. Good luck to all the pupils and schools entering the competition.

Full details of the competition can be found here.
