Mum Kirsty Feehan said: “We found out about the competition from it being advertised in Morrison’s but also from Facebook.

“I took along Aria-May on the Saturday and the next I heard anything about it was when I received a the call from the Gazette to say she has won it.

“It was such a lovely surprise to hear she had won the competition.”

Aria-May, who attends Meadow Kindergareten on Old Meadow Lane in Blackpool, won a canvas portrait, courtesy of ABC portraits, a silver salvar and a £25 gift card.

Kirsty said she received the canvas and trophy yesterday and took photos to share with family and friends on social media.

Aria-May’s brother Callum, 14, was made up that his baby sister was crowned Top Tot and Kirsty is now looking forward to treating her Top Tots superstar with the gift card.

Sue Bentley, The Gazette’s promotions manager, said: “Once again, we received some fantastic entries and it was great so many children could have their photos taken for the competition.

“A big congratulations to both Kirsty and Aria-May - I think we can agree that Aria-May is a true cutie and a deserving winner.”
