Gonville schoolboy wins competition to design MP’s card

Ten-year-old schoolboy Lewis Dyges from Gonville Primary in Thornton Heath has won a special prize for providing the design for local MP Steve Reed’s Christmas card – but he won’t find out what the prize is until Christmas day, because he has decided to keep it all wrapped up until then.

Dyges also received a printed copy of his winning design and a certificate, together with the runners-up, Layomi Osinowo and Aluel Omer Garang Yak Tonga.

“I was astonished by the very high standard of entries this year,” Reed said.

“It was very hard to pick a winner, but Lewis’s design stood out for its use of colour, visual impact and a very Christmassy feel. Lewis is clearly a very talented young man and I hope he and all the other children who entered the competition have a very happy Christmas.”
