Design a Mini Float for the 2018 Credit Union Christmas Pageant thanks to NOVA!

It's time to get creative, with entries now open for the Credit Union Christmas Pageant Design a Mini Float Competition!

Open to children aged 16 and under, the Design a Mini Float Competition gives entrants the chance to plan, draw and submit a design for a small, mobile set that is light enough to be pushed or pulled along the Pageant route on Saturday 10 November - this mini float will be an entirely original work that celebrates the spirit of Christmas.
