A city pupil could see their design on letters across the world this Christmas through a Royal Mail competition.

MP for Milton Keynes South, Iain Stewart has thrown his weight behind the competition which will be open to children between four and 11-years-old with the theme What Does Christmas Mean to You?

One winner will see their design on a First Class Christmas stamp while the other on a Second Class Christmas stamp.

Mr Stewart is encouraging local schools and parents of home-schooled children to quickly sign up for this competition, as entries must be received by July 19.

He said: “We have a variety of talent locally and what is often required is an opportunity for this to be demonstrated. I really am looking forward to hearing that one of our pupils has been successful in the competition.”
