Christmas Competition

Our popular Christmas Colouring Competition has returned once again for 2021!

This year we’re throwing open entries to all under-11s in Widnes. And the good news? It’s very easy to enter!

Step 1: Get the template

Download and print our blank Christmas Cracker template (or use a blank piece of paper if you prefer). Don’t worry, the template doesn’t need to be printed in colour.

Step 2: Get creative

Colour and decorate your cracker and make it look superb: the more creative and crafty the better!

Step 3: Prepare for entry

Now here comes the important bit! Write just your first name on the paper in the space provided (if you’re using our template). Otherwise, write it anywhere so we can see it in your photo. When you’ve done this grab a photo of your finished masterpiece, or scan it if you like.

Step 4: Send it in

Send an email to with your scan or photo before 23.59pm on 13th December 2021. Don’t forget to include your full name, age, contact email and your home address.

Once entries close we’ll pick some of the best and put them on our Facebook page at and ask our followers to vote for their favourite(s).

Voting takes place from Wednesday 15th December to Friday 17th December. The winners will be announced and contacted shortly after the votes close.

That’s all there is to it, so get entering and good luck!
