The winners of the annual Greater Manchester Police Christmas card competition for kids were announced last night just a couple of weeks before the big day.
Nikki-Louise Smith, 12 from Bolton won the age 10-14 category and Nyesha Kapur, 9 from Gorton won the aged nine and below.
The theme this year was to create a Christmas card that shows communities working together to make Greater Manchester a safe place to live which is particularly important around this time of year with all the festive spirit.
The two girls visited the GMP headquarters to be personally thanked for their entries.

Chief Constable Ian Hopkins said: “Yet again we had a great number of fantastic entries to the Christmas card competition.
“I was particularly impressed with Nikki-Louise and Nyesha’s entries because they perfectly encompassed the message of Greater Manchester Police and the community working together to create a safe place for everyone within a festive and fun design.
The deadline for entries was midnight on Monday 26th November and it topped last years with a record 80 entries counted from children across the city from Salford to Chorlton.

All partners and supporters of Greater Manchester Police will receive the two cards as a thank you for their help throughout what has been a whirlwind year.
The girls’ work will be published online soon.
