A BILINGUAL music class for young children in Barry were among the finalists of a top awards scheme.

Babi Bach were voted into contention for the Best New Activity for Children award at the What's On 4 2014 Junior Awards.

Babi Bach is a music class for little ones from birth to three-years-old and is the only bilingual class running in the Vale area.

Penni Carr, from Babi Bach, said: "We were absolutely thrilled to be finalists in these very prestigious awards.

"We have been going for less than 12 months and have achieved so much already.

"This is more than a dream come true for us. Babi Bach is really putting bilingual activities on the map.

"Although we didn't win we are the first Welsh language class to have ever made the finals. Proud is an understatement."
