A SCHOOLGIRL has designed the MP's constituency Christmas card.

Year 5 pupil Tara, of Ponteland Community Primary School, was the winner of the MP's Christmas Card competition.

Tara has now been presented a large replica of her card which has been sent directly to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, other members of the Cabinet, local businesses and residents.

"It was fantastic to meet with Tara and congratulate her on her brilliant design for my 2021 Christmas card", said MP Guy Opperman.

"I really enjoyed seeing all the great entries from schools across Tynedale and Ponteland this year."
