|Alice and Kieran|
The design by Kieran Cooke, aged 10 a pupil attending Hindley Green Community Primary School, Thomas Street was judged the winning entry with the runner up design submitted by Alice Hughes, aged 10 a pupil of St Oswald’s Catholic Primary School, Ashton in Makerfield.
Now in its fifth year the competition received hundreds of entries from primary schools across the Makerfield constituency making the process of selecting a winner and runner up very difficult

The entries this year were most impressive and it was very hard to choose an overall winner but Kieran’s design of a colourful and happy house reminded me that at the heart of a wonderful Christmas for so many is the opportunity to be with family and friends. Alice’s design of the baby Jesus and the little donkey is an image of Christ’s birth that we can all identify with.
Mrs D Affleck, Principal of Hindley Green Community Primary School said, “We are absolutely delighted that Kieran has won this fantastic competition. We are proud of his achievement; what a great start to the holiday season.”
