The winner of the 2017 Royal Air Force Wittering Christmas Card Competition is Serina Macbeath, a pupil at Wittering Primary School.

Every year pupils from Wittering Primary School are invited to enter a competition to design the Station’s official Christmas card. The cards are sent to everyone on RAF Wittering’s list, which includes local government, charities and veterans’ organisations and dignitaries.

Serina’s cheery drawing shows two smiling snowmen (complete with scarf and hat) outside a red-brick building, with snowflakes falling in the background.

Group Captain Tony Keeling, the Station Commander at RAF Wittering, and his wife Bobby made the final choice. He said: “It was a difficult decision. All the entries were excellent and children’s drawings always have a charmingly honest quality to them. Serina’s design was cheerful and Christmassy and has made a card anyone would be pleased to receive.”
