The team behind Little Ankle Biters – a local website which reviews activities for children - is calling all parents and carers in Windsor and Slough to nominate their favourite places to entertain the kids with the launch of the Little Ankle Biters’ Awards 2020 – Berkshire.

Now in their third year, the awards are designed to help celebrate local businesses and charities that provide an outstanding service to families and carers by gaining the seal of approval from those who experience them most.

Michelle Cairncross, founder of Little Ankle Biters said: “The Little Ankle Biters’ Awards will spread the word to local families and reward businesses, charities or community led groups that deserve to be recognised. Whether you have a favourite family friendly place to eat or have discovered an exceptional children’s activity class, 2020 could be their year to shine.”

Nominations are now open and the shortlist will be revealed Monday, February 3 when voting commences to see who’s going to kick-start 2020 with a prestigious award win.

The ten categories are: best family friendly place to eat, best family friendly pub, best local museum, best children’s party entertainer, best family attraction, best local theatre, best soft play, best children’s party venue. best children’s sports club or class and best children’s activity class.

Little Ankle Biters was established by former Vodafone colleagues, Kate Gregory, 41 from Thame and Michelle Cairncross, 40 from Maidenhead in 2017. The idea was born out of the frustration of two mums with four children and two dogs between them, who got tired of trawling the Internet and social media to seek out places to take their kids.

The company now provides its service to families and carers in Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire via its website and social media channels with all content written by editors who are also local mums.

To nominate your favourite child friendly places in Windsor and Slough or across the county for the Little Ankle Biters’ Awards 2020 - Berkshire, visit: Nominations close at midnight, Friday, January 31. Voting will commence from Monday, February 3 with winners announced in March.
