Editor Debbie Davies said: "One again, the response to our baby competition has been fantastic. It is lovely to see all the little faces in the newspaper and on our website and I hope readers will enjoy looking at them and voting for their favourites.
I would like to say a big 'thank you' to Hazel Morrison at the Shoe Tree who kindly agreed to let us use her shop as a photographic studio over the three days. I would also like to thank photographer Geoff Durrant for all his hard work.
