Brave little fighter Meadow claims Cutest Kid crown
THE many thousands of votes have been counted and we can now reveal our Cutest Kids.
Meadow Elora Chadwick is your Cute Kids winner for 2021.
With her cheeky little smile, this eight-monthold superstar has touched the hearts of our readers and has officially been voted our bonniest baby in the region.
Meadow was born with a heart condition called critical pulmonary stenosis, arriving into the world five weeks earlier than her due date. She was a true little fighter from the get go and went through two heart procedures at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital.
Meadow’s mum, Jemma, summed it up by saying: “She absolutely smashed them.
“She is just amazing.
She is our little champion!
“Meadow is just the most confident little baby, she makes us so proud each and every day!
“We had lots of help from friends and family collecting tokens, even running around to lots of different shops on the last token day to get tokens for Meadow.
“We are just over the moon.”
Meadow has now been crowned the Cutest Kid 2021 and wins £500.
More than 300 adorable youngsters were entered into this year’s competition.
Gracie Wright was runner-up, winning £300.
Tommy Dean came third, winning £200.
Chloe Robinson, promotions manager, said: “After such a difficult year-and-a-half, it was great to reintroduce the ever-popular Cute Kids competition and thanks to all of the parents who entered their little cuties!
“We have some gorgeous pictures sent in and I’m sure not only did it bring some smiles to the parents seeing their little ones in their local newspaper, but also to our readers as well.
“Having received some overwhelming number of votes for the first round, we then printed the top finalists who were voted for again and we can now proudly announce our winner and runners-up, each winning a cash prize.
“We hope they enjoy spending their winnings. Thank you to all that entered and votes – as always it’s been a pleasure.”
