Holiday Challenge – Set by Richard Holden MP

As the school term ends for the summer holidays, Richard Holden (our local MP) would like to invite you to write a short story.

The Theme is ‘A day in the life of an animal’. You need to imagine yourself in your pet or any other animal’s paws and tell him what you get up to for the whole day!

The competition is open to anyone under 11 years of age who live in or attend a school in his NW Durham Constituency.

Please include your name, age and which school you attend, or your parents’ contact details so that he can contact the winner.

It would be great if you could mention County Durham in your story and it should be no longer than 300 words.

The winner will be chosen by Richard himself. Entries should be submitted by Thursday 8th September and can be dropped off into his office or posted to:

Richard Holden MP, 25-27 Medomsley Road, Consett, Co. Durham. DH8 5HE.

Or you can email your story to his secretary:

There will be a prize for the winning story!
