Awards presentation recognises creativity of youngsters in Sudbury mayor's annual Christmas card competition




Schoolchildren who poured their artistic skills into the Sudbury mayor’s Christmas card competition were applauded for their creativity at a ceremony this week.

Ten-year-old Emily Oddie, a pupil at St Gregory’s Primary School, was crowned the overall winner of the competition by mayor Robert Spivey during an awards presentation at Sudbury Town Hall on Tuesday.

Emily has been invited to local printers Indigo Ross on Wednesday to watch her design go into print for the mayor’s official Christmas cards, which will then be delivered to surrounding towns and beyond.
