Royal Town Baby Contest 2014

March sees the return of the ever popular Royal Town Baby Contest. 2013 saw over 500 entries. Can we top that this year? 2014’s event is looking for something slightly different, but just as exciting!

Competition Theme: TOY BOX

We are actively looking for that ‘special picture’ that gets us talking! It could be your child learning to ride their Bike, playing Football or maybe hearing Teddy’s heartbeat……Younger entries could be having a cuddle with their favourite Toy or being amazed by ‘Jack in the Box’……See pictures attached for some inspiration!
