For most people the stress of Christmas preparation is over for another year. But Stalybridge and Hyde MP, Jonathan Reynolds, is already planning ahead.
Every year Mr Reynolds runs a competition to help with the design of his Parliamentary Christmas cards, inviting local photographers to submit their photos of the local area for the front of his cards.
Mr Reynolds said:
“I send a lot of Christmas cards to colleagues in and around Westminster and I think it is really nice to be able to show off the areas local beauty spots on the front.”
“We have some really talented photographers in the area, and every time I have asked for submissions there has been no shortage of great pictures.”
“I know some people will think it’s a bit early to be thinking about Christmas again, but a lot of time goes in to producing the cards so it’s never too early to start!”
Mr Reynolds will be taking submissions up until the end of March when he will be choosing the winner. He asks that anyone interested in submitting a photograph can do so by emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org
