THE winners of the Burton Mail Baby and Child of the Year competition have picked up their prizes.
Alexis King, from Stretton, was named as Baby of the Year with Aaliyah-Alyssa Watson, of Burton, being crowned Child of the Year.
This year’s competition was as strong as ever with more than 230 entries and almost 6,000 votes cast as the bouncing beauties battled it out to be crowned the winner.
As well as scooping the accolade of being named baby or child of the year, the youngsters were handed a Noddy toy during a presentation at the Mail’s offices, in High Street.
Their proud parents were also rewarded with a canvass print of the winning photos as well as £100 worth of high street shopping vouchers.
Newspaper sales manager Simon Archer said: “This is one of the most popular competitions in our calendar.”
