HUCKNALL Conservative MP Mark Spencer visited Hillside Primary and Nursery in the town this week to present an award to the winner of his ‘Design a Christmas Card’ competition.

Six year-old Layla-Rae Dodds created the winning design for his 2012 constituency Christmas card, which shows a sparkling tree packed with decorations.

“I was delighted to give the award to Layla-Rae during the school assembly,” said Mr Spencer. “I was a little nervous being in a school assembly again as it reminded me of my old school days, but it wasn’t as bad as I had feared,” he joked.

During his visit, the youngsters at Hillside performed a number of traditional carols, including ‘See Amid the Winter Snow’ and ‘Away In A Manger’.
