Prime Minister delighted with Ynys Môn MP’s Christmas card winner

Ynys Môn MP Virginia Crosbie has unveiled the winner of her annual Christmas card competition.

This year classes four and five of Ysgol Llanfairpwll have won with their one-metre-high design of a Christmas tree with the students all contributing a bauble.

The image has been reduced in size and will feature on the front of the card to be sent to public figures like the Prime Minister.

Runner up designs on the back are by Jac Griffiths aged nine of Ysgol Gynradd Bodedern and Trystan Burton, also nine of Ysgol y Tywyn.

The winner and runners-up receive book tokens as their prize.

Virginia showed an impressed Boris Johnson her card at Downing Street this week where she taught him how to say Nadolig Llawen.

“Many congratulations to the winners for their brilliant card. It was certainly larger than usual but full of great design and a tremendous amount of thought,” said Virginia.

“Congratulations too to the runners-up for their great designs. I was really impressed with the standard of entries this year and it was difficult to pick a winner.”

Virginia financed the cards using sponsorship from 13 local companies, so there was no cost to the taxpayer.

“I would really like to thank all those businesses who offered to put money in to sponsor the competition,” she added.

“Their logos will adorn the cards as they make their way to sit on mantelpieces across the country. It shows what a generous and broad range of businesses we have here on the island.”

The companies who sponsored the card are:

  • Red Boat Ice Cream
  • Morgan Evans Auctioneer and Estate Agent
  • The White Eagle, Rhoscolyn
  • DU Construction
  • Sergio’s Fish and Chips, Valley
  • Trecastell Hotel, Bull Bay
  • Braids Bistro, Holyhead Golf Club
  • Mona Tractors
  • JW Lees Brewery
  • The Valley Hotel
  • Mona Dairy
  • J Raymond Jones, Butcher
  • Orthios

Virginia has paid for the book tokens out of her own money.
