Wacky Wheelers win prestigious national awards...
Whats on 4 Little Ones "Best UK Children's Party Supplier 2015"
June 19th 2015 - Drayton Manor Theme Park, Staffs
Chris Wagstaff receives the award from Lucy Piper, having been a finalist for the same award in 2014
We were delighted that the Awards were once again hosted by the lovely Lucy Piper. Lucy has hosted major parenting and fashion events in UK and the USA and has appeared on TV including Sky and The Baby Channel. Lucy is also a mum and therefore really understands the importance of getting out and about with little ones and the difference classes and group activities make to parent's lives! She is a real star and her professionalism and warmth make the ceremony extra special! Over 90,000 votes were cast, and Wacky Wheelers were very proud to have come out on top.
Such a fantastic response from the UK's parents who want to reward those providers who have made such a different to their - and their children's - lives!

Wacky Wheelers voted number one by parents
Sonning Common based Wacky Wheelers has been named as the winner in the Best Children's Entertainment category at the prestigious 'What's On 4' 2010 Awards, announced last Sunday (27th June) at the Baby Expo in Brighton. Wacky Wheelers - which provides exciting and fun-filled mini Jeep driving parties for boys and girls aged between 4 and 8 - received their award from Phil Gallagher of Cbeebies Mister Maker.
The Awards programme, which was again supported by Prima Baby & Pregnancy magazine, is now in its fourth year and celebrates the best activities across the UK, as nominated and voted for by parents. This year, the awards were bigger than ever, covering 13 different categories ranging from Best National Pre-Schooler Activity to Most Outstanding Community Group Volunteer for children. In total this year, over 27,000 votes were cast - 13,000 more than last year - using the on-line directories www.whatson4littleones.co.uk, www.whatson4schoolkids.co.uk and www.whatson4kidsparties.co.uk
Wacky Wheelers brings five 2 seater battery operated Jeeps to any venue as well as a colourful inflatable track, Giant Connect4 and mini table football...and of course, fabulous music. It doesn't end with all the great equipment though - Wacky Wheelers structures the party so that it starts easily with no obstacles, then builds, adding traffic cones and culminates in a driving challenge through a slalom course. The climax of the party occurs when the birthday VIP drives a few 'high speed' laps of honour a while the other party goers cheer them on and sing happy birthday. It's a recipe that just never seems to fail!
Chris Wagstaff, founder of Wacky Wheelers said: "Given the England football debacle I'm just glad that someone local won on Sunday! We are absolutely delighted to have won - it's an accolade to the huge amount of effort and ideas that we put into constantly evolving our parties to make them fun, safe and memorable. It's also fabulous to see a Henley company top of the pile over all other entertainers in the UK - and a testament to the local staff we use. We have more exciting projects coming up very shortly which to our knowledge are World firsts - so watch this space!"
What's On 4 founder Sam Willoughby, who herself received a business award this month, said: "We are very proud of all our winners and finalists who demonstrate excellence in their field as recognised by parents across the UK. I'm particularly humbled by the winners of our 3 community awards who represent all the unsung heroes giving their time willingly every week for children in their local area. I'd like to sincerely thank the thousands and thousands of parents who voted in the awards."
Wacky Wheelers provide kids driving parties (like go-kart parties but better) in the South of England,
