Ledbury's mayor, Cllr Daniel Vesma, is already looking for Christmas cheer in the face of the Covid crisis.

Every year it is tradition for the Mayor of Ledbury to send a festive card to local organisations and groups.

But after the town council received lots of artwork for the shelter in the Recreation Ground, it was agreed that the council would invite primary school ages to enter a competition with the view to the winning picture being used on the Mayor's Christmas card this year.

And due to the current pandemic it was agreed that the theme for the Christmas card competition would be ‘Kindness at Christmas’ and ‘Together even when apart’.

Cllr Vesma said it was "vital to recognise how important it is to be kind and to keep in touch with loved ones through these difficult times, especially for those who are self-isolating."

The entries need to be submitted to the council by noon. November 16.
