Jessica’s Hull-themed Christmas design chosen for Hull City Council’s Christmas card

Hull City Council Leader, Councillor Mike Ross and Chief Executive, Matt Jukes, have picked the winning design for the council’s e-Christmas card.

The Lord Mayor of Kingston upon Hull and Admiral of the Humber, Councillor Kalvin Neal, Jessica the competition winner from Stoneferry Primary School and the Leader of Hull City Council, Councillor Mike Ross.

Primary school pupils from right across the city entered the annual competition.  

Jessica, age 8, from Stoneferry Primary School, submitted the winning design. Her design will be sent to hundreds of people and organisations in Hull and further afield, giving Christmas wishes.

Louie, age 6, from Ainthorpe Primary School, was the runner-up, and Ella, age 8, from Stoneferry Primary School, came in third place. All three pupils have won gift vouchers.

Councillor Mike Ross, Leader of Hull City Council said: “We want to thank all the young people of Hull who entered their fantastic designs. We hope the children enjoyed making them as much as we enjoyed looking at them all.

“We decided this year’s theme should be ‘Together at Christmas’ and for pupils to show what Christmas means to them. We felt Jessica’s design stood out, incorporating Christmas magic with a Hull twist. I am sure it will put a smile on the face of all the local people who receive our Christmas card this year.”
