And Little World of Play, based at the Cuddyhouse Road site, has been nominated in the Best New Activity and Best Independent Pre-schooler Activity for the Under 5s categories.

Jen and Pete, who run Little World Of Play said: "We're a local family with three young children of our own and felt the area needed more to entertain the little ones.

"Little World of Play is a miniature version of any town with all the usual shops and businesses; such as a supermarket, a fire station, a beauty salon, a hospital, a restaurant, a police station and much more - all in the perfect mini size to inspire the imaginations of little people.

"Kids can drive around our world in toy cars, complete work on the construction site or they may even want to become the star of the stage in the theatre!

"We also have a soft play frame for them to burn off their energy and a small soft play area for babies".

Said a spokesperson for What's On 4 Kids Awards: "Each finalist deserves to be congratulated on getting this far in the UK's leading and longest established awards for the sector. 2018 was an exceptional year with voting very fierce across all the categories right up to the end so thank you to everyone for being part of the action!"

Little World of Play has transformed the former Remploy factory which had been unused for some time.
