John blazes into town

Year 11 student John Lynn has produced the winning design for Ashington Town Council’s Christmas Light Competition. With pencil drawings John created his image of Christmas and the judges were so impressed with the detail of the picture that they had a difficult task deciding which part to use.

It was John’s warm fire hearth with a blazing fire, hanging Christmas stockings and a cheery Ho, Ho that grabbed their attention. Ashington now has the perfect art installation to brighten the streets on dark winter evenings!

The Deputy Mayor attended a celebration where John received his prize and saw the results of his art work made up as a Christmas light.
