SECOND-YEAR pupil Ailsa Nairn is helping to spread festive cheer after winning Hawick MSP John Lamont’s ‘Design a Christmas card’ competition.

Ailsa’s snowy Christmas tree was selected from hundreds of entries from throughout the Borders and she was rewarded this week when Mr Lamont presented her with a £200 voucher which she will use to buy a camera.

Burnfoot Community School pupil Klaudia Salamonska and Drumlanrig’s Aidan Murphy were two of four runners-up with their respective designs of a Christmas tree and Santa Claus. They will be presented with book vouchers on Monday.
