THE weather may have been nice in the past few weeks but these little rays of sunshine will have been bringing even more happiness to their parents this summer.

So we want to welcome to East Lancashire to these wonderful babes. We hope the new mums and dads are happy despite some sleepless nights.

We have featured lots of new arrivals and want you to keep them coming and we will publish them online.

Tell us your birthing stories or alternatively hairy babies tales.

You can send a photograph and some information by email to

Finally, have you got a story for us? If so, contact our newsdesk at or by using our online contribution form
