Angus MP meets winner of Christmas card competition
Piper’s Christmas card design.

Mr Doogan met local student Piper Robertson at Haysfield Primary School in Arbroath.

The MP had invited primary school aged children to take part in the competition via a letter sent to each school.

He asked them to design a Christmas card to be printed and then sent out from the local MP.

Commenting on the competition, Mr Doogan said: “I was delighted to meet with Piper and her family at her school.

" Her card stood out to me instantly when I saw it, and although it was a hard decision, Piper’s design was the one that shone through just that wee bit extra.

“I was blown away with the standard of creativity from Angus pupils.

"I would like to thank every single child who took part.

" I looked over every single entry, and they were all absolutely fantastic.

“I will be running the Christmas card competition again next year and look forward to seeing even more outstanding Angus artwork.”

Piper’s card, which is hand drawn with coloured pencils, shows Santa beside a Christmas tree and a snowman, heading towards a well-drawn brick house with Rudolph flying overhead, with “Merry Christmas <3” written above.

The simplistic nature of the card made it stand out from the rest and Piper will now see her card sent out to many households and offices in the run-up to Christmas.

Piper’s mum and dad went along to meet with the MP when he visited the school.
