Local girl set to enjoy snow this Christmas after winning Selly Oak Christmas card competition

Steve McCabe MP was thrilled to present Cleonie Allchurch, winner of his Parliamentary Christmas card competition with a fun day out at the Snowdome, so she’s set to enjoy the snow this Christmas! 

Every year, Steve runs a Christmas card competition with local schools and once again was faced with the difficult task of picking a winner out of hundreds of creative and imaginative designs from pupils across Selly Oak constituency.

As part of the annual competition which is sponsored by Oulsnam and Davisons Solicitors, pupils were asked to design a Christmas card which signifies what Christmas means to them. Over 15 primary schools took part this year and after much deliberation; Cleonie Allchurch of Cotteridge Junior and Infant School was picked as the winner. Cleonie’s fantastic design features on Steve’s Christmas card which is sent to hundreds of people in the constituency and across the country.

Steve and sponsors, Oulsnam and Davisons presented Cleonie with a special certificate during the Stirchley Christmas Lights Switch on after local children sang Christmas carols along with a prize which Cleonie picked herself, a trip to the Snowdome for a fun filled time of tobogganing!

Steve also presented prizes to close runner-ups, Beatrice King from St Alban’s Catholic Primary School and Noah Bird from Hollywood Primary School with tickets to the see The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe at the REP and Aladdin the Pantomime at the Hippodrome. A winner from each school was also selected to receive a prize, including passes to the Sea Life Centre, Cineworld and Dudley Zoo.

Steve McCabe MP said:

“Congratulations to Cleonie for her brilliant design, the runners up and everyone who entered! I received so many fantastic entries and it was tough to pick one but Cleonie’s drawing of Santa’s sleigh and the snow really sums up the joy of Christmas and I’m glad Cleonie will get to enjoy some snow over the Christmas holidays. I really hope Cleonie, Beatrice and Noah all enjoy their fun days out.”

“I would like to thank Ian Williams and Andrew Oulsnam, Managing Partners of Oulsnam Estate Agents and Gary Davison and Helen Bartlam from Davisons Solicitors for sponsoring my Christmas card again this year; it’s great to work with local businesses on projects like this and it wouldn’t be possible to do this without them. I would also like to thank Dudley Zoological Gardens, Cineworld, Away2Canal, the Hippodrome, the REP theatre, Adventure Mini Golf, the Sea Life Centre and the Snowdome for their very generous prize donations.”
