Mayor's Christmas card competition now open


Pictured: winning card designs from last year's competition

The Mayor of Tower Hamlets, John Biggs, is on the lookout for exciting new designs for his 2018 Christmas card.

We are delighted to launch this year’s Christmas card competition for children who live or go to school in Tower Hamlets.

As well as having their design made into a real card, the winners will receive a book token and be invited to our town hall along with their parents so Mayor Biggs can thank winners in person.

Mayor John Biggs said: “The festive season is fast approaching so now is the time for children to get creative. We have some extremely talented young people in Tower Hamlets and I’m looking forward to seeing this year’s wonderful designs”.
