Pearl MacMurray and Rebecca Lord, both age 11 and in Year 6 at Wheatfields Junior School, took part in the Herts county council-run contest alongside other schoolchildren from across the county.

Rebecca's design featured images representing the army, navy and air force, surrounding the Hertfordshire Heroes logo, while Pearl's drawing was a teddy bear Christmas decoration, dressed in army uniform and giving a salute. As well as receiving certificates, both girls won a day of adventure from Northwood military headquarters in Herts.

Cllr Terry Douris, chairman of Hertfordshire Armed Forces Covenant Board, said the cards would be a "fantastic morale booster" to the armed forces.
