Merry Christmas from Richard Burden MP


Christmas card 1

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.

Congratulations to Charlee Hone from The Meadows Primary School who designed the winning entry in my Christmas card competition this year.

The theme is ‘Christmas Sports in Northfield.’ Once again there were some fantastic entries and I love Charlee’s idea of snowmen playing football with a Christmas pudding! A big thank you to all the schools and children who took part.
