It’s that time of year again and Rachel is launching her annual Christmas card design competition.

The competition is open to every child up to the age of 16 living and attending a school in the Redditch constituency.

The winner’s card will be selected to go to all of Rachel’s contacts this Christmas, and their family will be given the chance to visit the Palace of Westminster on one of Rachel’s coach tours.

There is no specific theme for the competition, except that it should depict a seasonal subject and should be something relevant to Redditch.

Due to the printing process, entries cannot have items attached to them like glitter, cotton or feathers. Entries should be up to A4 in size, have the artist’s full name, address, date of birth, and school on the reverse and must not be folded.

Entries should be sent to FREEPOST RACHEL MACLEAN MP, REDDITCH. No stamp is required, and no other wording is needed on the envelope.

The deadline for entries is 5.30pm on Monday, November 8th 2021.

Rachel said:

“I’m really looking forward to seeing this year’s designs. The more creative the better.

“It is lovely to receive a card from a talented young artist rather than a standard snowy picture of Parliament or a wintry Big Ben.

“Time to get designing!”
