I decided last year that this one, 2012, would be my last so I've now hung up the white beard, brushed all the glitter off my coat and put the elf costumes away for the last time.
I was thrilled to get a call from the local paper, the Chronicle, saying that I had been nominated for a Pride in Oldham award to mark my retirement (I'd have packed it in years ago if I'd have known that's what I needed to do to win something!). Now I have to garner for votes - I'm up against some wonderful people so I don't expect to win but I'd like to get a few votes to save red faces.... so if you would like to support me please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with 'Pride in Oldham' in the heading. Then write 'Voting for Mark Llewellin - 39' and include your name and address if you like (if you live in the UK you might win a invite to the awards dinner just for voting)
Many thanks - if you'd like to vote for someone else then you'll find a full list of nominees on the Chron's website. Closing date for voting is Jan 6.
