During the Mayor’s Christmas Card Competition the town council was inundated with fantastic festive entries.

The Mayor, Louis Stark, has been impressed with the quality of all of the designs. 

The Mayor found it difficult to choose just one winner and after much deliberation, he selected two!

The winners of the Christmas Card Competition are Maya Tafat who drew a wonderful festive design, and Molly Whyman, who impressed with her Snowy church scene. 

The winners met with Maya and Molly, offering his congratulations and presented them both with a little gift as an award for winning the competition.

Both cards are available to purchase starting next week from the town council offices at The Corn Exchange, High Street.

The cards are being sold for £5 for a pack of 5 with all profits going to the mayor’s charity, EnviroAbility. 

For those interested in reserving a pack, please email [email protected].

Keeping with the Christmas spirit, John Kyrle High School thanks the following students for taking part in the Monmouth Lantern parade. 

The school is thanking, Ella Breakspear, Menna Rees, Toby Rees, Alex Sokolowski, Imogen Davies and Ella Downing.

Oliver Almond was also in attendance, escorting the Mayor as part of his role as the Mayor’s cadet.

The parade was described as a fun, festive experience to kick strait the Christmas Spirit!
