Melksham Carnival hosted its annual Bonnie Baby competition at the Forest Community Centre‘s family fun day.

On behalf of the carnival committee, Beth Dark said, “It was a wonderful day with sunshine and smiles. Our judges had an incredibly difficult job!

“Melksham’s Bonniest Baby was won by Milo Clarke. The other results were: 0-6 months – 1st Paisliegh-May Brown, 2nd Dakota Drewett, 3rd Blake Wilding; 7-11 months – 1st Tilly Newman, joint 2nd Ester Lillie Saunders and Charlie Painter; 1-2 years – 1st Elsie Sayers, 2nd Ebony Rose Wyatt-Joyce, 3rd Dolcie Drewett; 3-4 years – 1st Bethany Nigunananthan, 2nd Lillian Henshall.

“Each award was accompanied by a beautiful teddy bear with a Melksham Carnival/Circle of Life Wiltshire ribbon. Circle of Life Wiltshire are our newest and very welcome sponsor. Tamara Dickson, the business founder,  donated the beautiful bears and hand print gift sets given to our winners, plus a bouquet to the most photogenic winner. 

“Melksham’s overall winner was awarded the ‘Melksham’s Bonniest Baby’ trophy, kindly donated by the ever-supportive Cobblers Bench ladies. The mother of the winner was given a wonderful voucher from Libra Hair and Beauty, one of our loyal supporters. 

“There was an additional award given to  the ‘Most Photogenic Child’ kindly organised by the brilliant Blaze photography. This prize was awarded to Eleanor Short and she wins a family photo shoot at Blaze studio. We would like to thank all our amazing supporters and the wonderful staff at Forest Community Centre for making us feel so welcome.”
