Evie Rutter, of Lubenham All Saints Primary School, has come out top in Harborough MP Neil O’Brien’s tough annual contest.

The talented artist beat dozens of fine drawings from youngsters across Harborough, Oadby and Wigston to be crowned winner.

Tucked in just behind Evie were runners-up Anais Kirby, of St Cuthbert’s Church of England Primary School, Great Glen, and Keziah Rule, of Wigston Academy.

Neil said: “We had some brilliant entries this year, so picking a winner certainly wasn’t easy.

“Some of the drawings received were great and the pupils had clearly put a lot of work in.”

He added: “Well done to all who took part and especially to Evie for her excellent winning drawing.

“This year, due to tight timeframes surrounding the general election, I’ll be sending out e-cards.

“But a special version will be made for Evie because she thoroughly deserves it!”
