The Christmas Tree has gone up in the lobby with a new
addition this year… an angel on the top which was designed by a competition
Seven-year-old Joseph Wright helped mum Karen design the
angel after Celtic Manor launched a competition for families to design the
decoration which takes pride of place on the resort’s impressive and much-loved, 25-foot tree.
The winning entry was a traditional silver and white angel
incorporating Celtic knot patterns around the shoulders.
Karen said: “Joseph told me what he wanted and I drew it up
so it was a real team effort. We were delighted when we were told we had won
and it’s lovely to see our design brought to life in the finished angel.”
Joseph and brother Dylan, and Karen and husband David got to see
their winning creation when they enjoyed a two-night stay at Celtic Manor as
“We’ve had a fantastic time,” added Karen. “The boys have
loved swimming and playing adventure golf and we’ve all had a really relaxing
time. Unfortunately we were just too early to see the angel on the tree but we'll be coming back to Christmas Kingdom in December so we'll have a good look then.”
