The winners of the competition, George Broadbent, Yukthi Pothuraj, Martha Lane, and Millie Turner, were invited to join the Mayor on stage at our annual Christmas Lights Switch On in the Town Centre on Thursday, November 23rd.

Together, they were responsible for turning on Buckingham’s Christmas lights. In addition to that, they got a pack of their own designs. Scarlett Johnston was recognised for the outstanding work she put forth in the creation of a 3D card by receiving a certificate that said she had been highly commended.

The Buckingham Tourist Information Centre is now taking orders for the cards, which are also available for purchase there.

Every pack that is purchased generates revenue for the Mayor’s Charities, which include the Buckingham Food Bank and the Jedidiah Free Fresh Food Pantry.

The Buckingham Food Bank provides perishable and fresh food to those in need who have been referred by an organisation or a local church.

The Jedidiah Free Fresh Food Pantry works in partnership with local supermarkets to repurpose the surplus food that the supermarkets are unable to sell. “We would like to express our gratitude to our sponsor, BCQ, for their support of the initiative”.

The Mayor of Buckingham, councillor Anja Schaefer, expressed her admiration for the participants in this year’s Christmas card competition, saying, “I was so impressed with the entries.”

There were over one hundred submissions, and each one did a wonderful job of elegantly capturing the spirit of Christmas; hence, it was an extremely challenging task to select the winners. The winning entries are all stunning examples of how the theme of “Together at Christmas” may be interpreted creatively.
