10 year old Ruby Cockburn's Christmas card design is on its way to thousands of homes right across the Cheadle Parliamentary constituency after winning local MP Mark Hunter's annual Christmas card competition.

Yesterday (17 December) Mark visited Moss Hey Primary School in Bramhall to present Ruby with a special House of Commons gift set in assembly and congratulate her on her colourful card design.

All primary schools in the constituency were invited to participate and a special prize was awarded for the best entry at each school in addition to the overall winner. Every child that took part also received a special certificate of commendation to congratulate them on their entry.

Commenting, Mark said:

"Ruby's smashing card design was chosen because of its colourfulness and cheerfulness.

"It was a really tough decision, with so many excellent designs to choose from our young starlets.

"Lots of MPs send a House of Commons Christmas card round, but the children always enjoy our Christmas card and I would much rather a child from my constituency have the opportunity to share his or her design with the tens of thousands of people across our area."
