BARNSLEY East MP has launched his annual Christmas card design competition.

MP Michael Dugher has written to all infant, junior and special schools in his constituency to encourage pupils to get creative with their designs and enter the competition.

The best design will be used as Mr Dugher’s official 2015 Christmas card which will be sent to hundreds of politicians, local businesses, civic leaders and voluntary groups.

Mr Dugher said: “We have such creative and talented children in Barnsley and each year I’m always impressed by the excellent designs."
