    Commenting Greg said:
    "I was delighted with the great number of fantastic entries this year - there was a really high standard and choosing a winner was not easy.
    "However, I chose Ben's entry as it instantly struck me as a fantastic design that would look great on fireplaces all over Leeds North West.
    "Well done to everyone who entered, and congratulations to Ben whose design will be hand delivered to 36,000 households in Leeds North West."

    Jane Disley, Headmistress at Richmond House School, said:
