Jack's snowman Christmas card makes national finals

A FOUR-year-old from Chieveley has secured a place in the finals of a national Christmas art competition.

Jack Hartley, who attends Chieveley Pre-school, has created a footprint snowman that has made it through to the www.minimecardco.com National Christmas 2016 art competition finals.

Chieveley Pre-school manager Sarah King said: “We think creativity is vital for helping children develop.

“Our aim is to develop great life skills for all our children for use in later life.

“We really enjoyed making our art, which was made into free greetings cards, but had no idea we would get into the finals.

“There are some great prizes so we are keeping our fingers crossed!”

A professional artist will now judge the overall winners from across the UK.
