The fashion show was organised by the Baby Exchange Library to mark the service's first anniversary and held as part of the toddler group at Maidstone Road Baptist Church in Felixstowe.

Youngsters modeled some of the clothes the library has on offer at the moment - and the tots loved showing off and joining in as mums and carers watched.

The Baby Exchange Library is an initiative to give families access to clothes, toys and other essentials and allow them to pass on their unwanted items to benefit other families.

Organisers Karen Storer and Ruth Warner said they welcomed any unwanted good quality baby or toddler clothes for age up to three years, baby essentials, and maternity wear.

The items selected from the library could be kept by the families or passed on to someone in need, but were not for reselling.

Items did not have to be returned to the exchange as long as they are passed on when no longer needed.

The exchange library is open every Wednesday during term time at toddler group at the church in Maidstone Road from 9.15am to 11am and is a free service relying purely on donations.

The aim of the fashion show was to create a fun event for parents, carers and children to raise the profile of the exchange service and encourage others to use it.

For further information about the Baby Exchange Library ring Karen Storer on 01394 274516 or Ruth Warner on 01394 670306.
