On a lovely, luckily sunny, day in mid August we held our third annual Teddy Bears Picnic in aid of Positive Steps at West Parley Memorial Hall.

Many thanks to all who intended to come and all those who just happened to be passing in helping make it a great day out for the kids (and a bit for the grown ups!).  There was lashings of cake and tea, lots of garden games, face painting, bouncy castle and some lovely treats for the adults including hand massage and facials from Lydia Bardell Johnson, at Tropics Skincare and also Sue Ashton at Phoenix Cards who managed to meet that never ending demand for birthday cards. Everyone one considered it a really good and inexpensive event to entertain the kids during the school holidays and raise money for a good cause, we managed to raise a fantastic £227 for Positive Steps this year.

Special thanks go to Clare Anderson, Lydia Bardell-Johnston , Sue Ashton,  Zoe Jarvis-Woodbridge , Trish Taylor, Laura Jane Evans, Gen Hakimzadeh, Castlemania and Treats Toy Library for their continued help and support.
