Durham Police Christmas Card Competition

Primary school students are being urged to embrace the spirit of Christmas and create a festive card for Durham Constabulary.

The competition which takes place every year is open to students of primary school age across the County Durham and Darlington area.

The winners will be hand-picked by Chief Constable Jo Farrell and will be professionally printed and sent out to key community members on behalf of the force.

The design should incorporate the themes of Christmas and the police, entries should be of A4 size and composed in pen or pencil.

Please also ensure that on the reverse of the entry it includes the name, age and school of the child.

The top artist will receive a mountain bike, courtesy of Durham Agency Against Crime which will be presented in front of their peers in early December.

PCSO Claire Kerr, handler of dogs Jet and Ben who will also pay a visit to the winner said: “We would like primary schools to hold their own competitions and ask teachers to submit the winning designs to the force competition.

“Each year I am always hugely overwhelmed with the quality of the designs so we know there are some really talented artists out there.

“We’d be grateful if everyone could share the message with their local schools so that everyone gets the chance to take part, the more the merrier!”

Entries should be sent to: PCSO Claire Kerr, Dog Support Unit, The Barns, Enterprise City, Spennymoor, Co. Durham, DL16 6JF.

Entries must be received by the closing Date of Friday, November 12, 2021.
