A Dorchester Cafe is in the regional finals to win Best Children's Party Venue after being nominated by their customers.

Munchkins Play Cafe in Princes Street was set up by two local mums, Michelle Cheeseman and Mel Ford, last year.

They're now one of nine shortlisted to win the West Dorset's Favourite Party Award from parenting website Netmums.com.

Munchkins Play cafe will win if it gains the most votes on the website, they face competition from Farmer Palmers in Poole and the Pottery Parlour in Blandford Forum amongst others.

We spoke to one of the founding mums, Michelle Cheeseman, and asked her why she thought the cafe had been such a success, "Parents are really thrilled with the fact that they get proper coffee and tea, really good food, and the children are catered for and happy in a lovely lovely play environment. It's just a really nice place to come and relax."

She continued to thank all of their customers who had voted for them and said, "A massive thank you for an amazing first year, everybody's been so supportive and positive. Really happy with everything, so thank you everybody."
