A St Albans estate agents have given two youngsters a very merry Christmas after announcing them as winners of their festive drawing competition.

The “Draw your Perfect Santa Sleigh” competition, ran by Hamptons International, was open to children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 at St Michael’s C of E Primary school in St Michael’s Street, St Albans.

Flynnt Biggar, six, and Tabitha Smith, four, impressed Hamptons International staff and members of the public with their “imaginatively drawn” Santa sleighs.

The talented winners were voted for by members of public who posted the name of their favourite artist in a ballot box in the branch, based in High Street.

Flynnt and Tabitha were rewarded with an art kit and the school will receive a £200 donation.

Branch manager Nuala Easter said: “We are so impressed with the standard this year and are pleased to display the winning entries in our window over the festive season.”
