A BLACKBURN girl used her charm and enthusiasm to win a place on a board of executive Little Leaders for a national play centre.

Phoebe Reast-Jones, eight, was one of 10 children between five and eight selected to help create a new children’s menu for Fayre and Square pubs and to influence future ideas for Wacky Warehouse soft play centres.

Phoebe was chosen from almost 200 entries after being nominated by her mum Helen Elftesi.

She said: “Phoebe amazes me every day with her thoughts and ideas and I think something like this would be perfect for her.”

The board of 10 Little Leaders will now come together at the company’s headquarters in Burton-upon-Trent to discuss ideas.
