Children from three primary schools took part in a competition to design a birthday card for the Queen.
Pupils from Little Heath Primary School in Potters Bar, St Mary’s Primary School in North Mymms and Brookmans Park Primary School made the cards for the Queen’s 90th birthday on Thursday, April 21, as part of a competition organised by North Mymms Parish Council.
The cards had to be hand drawn on an A4 sheet of paper, and around 100 children entered.
Winners Bonnie O’Brien, Daisy Westrope and Hollie Collard were presented with their prizes by Lord Salisbury during a beacon-lighting ceremony at Hatfield House, on the Queen’s birthday.
Each winner received a commemorative mug of the Queen and a laminated version of their birthday card.
Linda Saffer, vice-chairman of North Mymms Parish Council, said: “We were looking for different age groups.
“The older one had done a lovely poem on the back. They had to be relevant to the Queen. They had done pictures of the Queen and of horses and Buckingham Palace and things like that.
“They put a lot of effort into it.”
All of the entries have been sent to the Queen at Buckingham Palace.
