WHETHER it's their cheeky grin, sweet giggle or chubby cheeks that make them special, your little bundle of joy could be crowned this year’s Wirral Bonny Baby!

The search is on to find the borough’s cutest baby and this year parents are in for a treat if their little one is crowned winner with prizes including shopping vouchers and a family meal.

The event, which is in association with Birkenhead Market, saw 195 babies being put forward for the title last year and it is hoped even more will get involved this year.
