Super-fan Eleanor is peppered with Peppa Pig treats
Britain’s biggest Peppa Pig super-fan, Eleanor Day, is getting some amazing treats since her story appeared in our sister paper, the Spalding Guardian.
Yvonne Porter-Smith, who runs The Fabric Fae in Holbeach, has made a tote bag, purse and pencil case in Peppa Pig fabric, and will present them to the little girl from Cowbit soon.
Eleanor (9) was named Peppa Pig’s biggest fan on This Morning, presented by Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, and ITV has now sprung a big surprise for the family – tickets to Peppa Pig World.
Eleanor’s mum, Zoe Warren, was bowled over by Yvonne’s offer of Peppa Pig items.
Zoe said: “I thought it was an absolutely lovely thing to do.”
She’s keeping mum about the big surprises until they happen and may not tell Eleanor about Peppa Pig World until they have set off.
Eleanor was excited to have her picture on the front page and page 5 of Thursday’s Spalding Guardian, and Zoe bought several copies to share around the family as keepsakes.
Zoe said: “Her little brother (George) wanted to have his own newspaper to keep.”
There were lots of lovely comments to treasure on
social media and it was through the Lincolnshire Free Press and Spalding Guardian’s Facebook that Yvonne offered to make a tote bag for Eleanor.
Yvonne, who runs the Park Road business with husband Gary, said: “We want to be part of the community ... it’s really nice to give back sometimes. We are a little bit of a hub, if you like, where people come in for a cup of tea.”
