THIS year’s collection of East Lancashire MP’s Christmas cards range from the regular primary school competition winners to modern art and women’s political history.

Hyndburn Labour MP Graham Jones kept his festive missive strictly local with a photo of snow-covered Haworth Art Gallery in Accrington.

Ribble Valley Tory Nigel Evans went all modern with a picture of the famous October shredding of Banksy’s Girl with a Balloon print seconds after it was sold at Sotheby’s for £1million.

On the back he references his work as a member of the House of Commons International Development Committee.

Blackburn Labour MP Kate Hollern chooses a pro-women’s suffrage postcard to mark 100 years of the first UK females getting the vote.

While the three of them broke ranks, Burnley Labour MP Julie Cooper and her Tory counterparts for Rossendale and Darwen, Jake Berry, and Pendle's Andrew Stephenson all ran the traditional school competition.

Mrs Cooper’s winning snowman was designed by Jacob Davey, nine, from Padiham Primary.

Mr Berry’s ‘Lancashire’ reindeer was the work of Sophie Bell from year six at Crawshawbooth Primary School.

The winning entry in Mr Stephenson’s competition was created by Martyna Bilska, 10, from Sacred Heart RC Primary in Colne.

Here's how the MPs summed up their cards.

Mr Jones: “The meaning of my Christmas cards this year is simple. It’s to celebrate what a great place Hyndburn is .”

Mrs Cooper: “The theme was ‘Christmas comes to Burnley’ and more than 1,000 children entered from borough schools.”

Mrs Hollern: “I chose a suffragette theme given this year’s big anniversary.”

Mr Evans: “I am extremely passionate about the work of the International Development Committee.”

Mr Berry: “This year’s them was a Lancashire Christmas. “

Mr Stephenson: “The standard of entries this year was particularly high and choosing just one winner was really difficult."
