A competition is being held for school children to design a Christmas card.
Councillor Pat Vaughan organised the competition for Primary school children, which will allow a lucky winner to turn on Lincoln’s Christmas lights.
The aim of the competition is to design a new Christmas card with the theme, ‘What does Christmas in Lincoln mean to you?’
The winning card will be sold in and around Lincoln, and help raise money for a local charity, the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
Designs can use crayons, paints, glitter, and any other material that will give the card a festive design.
The winner will turn on the Christmas lights alongside Mayor Chris Buetler, and ‘Allo ‘Allo actress Sue Hodge, who played waitress Mimi Labonq.
