El­lie holds the cards!

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Jonathan Geddes

A Cairns pri­mary pupil has been quick on the draw this Christ­mas.

El­lie Ross ( 10) saw her snow­man de­sign picked by Tom Greatrex MP and James Kelly MSP for their Christ­mas card this year.

Joint run­ners up came from Cerys Polockus from St Blane’s Pri­mary, Bren­dan Bul­loch at Loch Pri­mary and St Bride’s pri­mary pupil Brook­lyn Don­nelly.

Ev­ery pupil who en­tered the com­pe­ti­tion re­ceived a cer­tifi­cate from their lo­cal Mem­ber of Par­lia­ment and Mem­ber of the Scot­tish Par­lia­ment dur­ing a re­cent tour of all the pri­mary schools par­tic­i­pat­ing in the com­pe­ti­tion.

This is the third year run­ning the com­pe­ti­tion, for pri­mary six classes through­out Ruther­glen, Cam­bus­lang and Blan­tyre has taken place.

The en­tries were of an ex­cep­tion­ally high stan­dard and for the first time in the his­tory of the com­pe­ti­tion the win­ning de­sign is on dis­play at the Ruther­glen Ex­change.

James Kelly MSP said: “The high qual­ity of the en­tries we re­ceived this year was just amaz­ing and I was de­lighted with some of the ex­cep­tional card de­signs.

“I would like to con­grat­u­late El­lie on her ex­cel­lent de­sign, which will fea­ture on our of­fi­cial par­lia­men­tary Christ­mas card.

“A lot of work has gone into this year’s card and we would like to thank Mor­ri­son’s, Cam­bus­lang, and Tesco Burn­side for donat­ing the prizes for the com­pe­ti­tion.”

Tom Greatrex MP said: “It was great to visit Ruther­glen Ex­change for the un­veil­ing of our Christ­mas Card com­pe­ti­tion win­ner, El­lie Ross. We had so many great en­tries this year, and it’s great to be able to fi­nally show off El­lie’s fan­tas­tic win­ning de­sign.

“I would like to thank all the schools that took part and hope the pupils en­joyed par­tic­i­pat­ing in the com­pe­ti­tion.

“I’d also like to thank the man­ager of Ruther­glen shop­ping cen­tre, Jane Cowan, and all the staff for help­ing to pub­li­cise the com­pe­ti­tion.”

James and Tom have also thanked PTS Clean, ECGFS Fa­cil­i­ties and Ruther­glen Ex­change for spon­sor­ing this year’s com­pe­ti­tion.
