MP for West Suffolk Matt Hancock received some help in choosing the winning design for his annual Christmas card.

Mr Hancock asked Jo Churchill MP for Bury St Edmunds, James Waters, leader of Forest Heath District Council, and John Griffiths, leader of St Edmundsbury Borough Council, to help him pick a winner.

Hundreds of entries came from primary schools across his West Suffolk constituency, and the winning entry was designed by Kaya Curry, aged 10, from Forest Academy in Brandon.

Mr Hancock said: “I received so many fantastic designs, it was difficult to choose a winner.

“Luckily, I had Jo, James and John to help. There are so many talented and creative young artists in our local schools and I hope this competition started them thinking about and looking forward to Christmas.

“Well done to the winner, Kaya Curry, I loved her picture of a Christmas tree made of hearts.”
