Lincoln council’s Christmas card winner chosen

The Mayor of Lincoln has chosen his winning design to go on all his Christmas cards this year.

Catriona Lee, aged 9, won the City of Lincoln Council’s annual Christmas card competition this year, using the theme, “What does Christmas in Lincoln mean to you?”

Her card features a large decorated Christmas tree, with baubles featuring a variety of iconic Lincoln buildings.

She will now join the Mayor and Paralympic Silver Medallist Jade Etherington on stage to switch on the city’s Christmas lights on Thursday, November 20.

Catriona said: “I was really happy when I found out I had won the competition. I’m looking forward to meeting the Mayor and Jade Etherington and switching on the Christmas lights.”

The Mayor of Lincoln, Councillor Brent Charlesworth, added: “I have been very impressed by the quality of the entries for my Christmas card competition this year, and I’m delighted that the card I’ve selected really tells the story of what’s happening at Christmas in Lincoln.

“My congratulations to Catriona Lee and all the others who submitted entries. I hope Catriona will enjoy assisting me at the switching on of the Christmas lights along with our celebrity guest Jade Etherington.”
