Teddy Bears' Fair

Teddy Bears' Fair 2018!

St. George's Church in Brede had a wonderful Teddy Bears' picnic last year.  The Zip Wire from the Tower was even longer than the previous year for our brave bears!

 

In 2016 addition to the usual games and refreshments, we had a mobile bell ringing tower erected next to the Rectory, so that visitors could sample the art of campanology.  

 

There was also face painting, with some lovely looking children's faces!

 

this year the Teddy Bear Fair will be on Sunday 24th June from 2.00 - 4.30 pm.  Fly your Teddy (or furry!) down from the top of St George's tower on a zip wire and get a certificate and a badge!

 

There will be a Teddy Treasure Hunt.  Decorate your own Teddy biscuit. Lucky dip.  Bring and buy toy stall. Guess the name of the Teddy.  Guess the number of sweets in the jar. Refreshments, etc.

 

Open Tower with Bell Ringing Demonstrations!  All adults and over 14s are invited to have a gos at bell tinging!

 

 

Teddy Bears' Picnic 2015!

St. George’s Church in Brede was transformed into a Teddy Bear picnic in mid-August this year when the Tower became the launching pad for intrepid bears down a special zip-wire!

 

Numerous children and 'big kids' (adults) came with Teddy Bears, rabbits and an assortment of other animals, including a pink pig, to have a harness attached before being taken up the Tower and launched across the valley.

 

All were reunited with their owners and, once safely back on the ground, each bear was given a badge and a certificate!

 

Besides the zip wire there were games for children, a lucky dip, and cream teas available throughout the afternoon and, fortunately, the weather stayed fine.
