Teddy Bears' Picnic
14th May 2017
Teddy Bears' Picnic 2016!
St. George's Church in Brede had a wonderful Teddy Bears' picnic in May. The Zip Wire from the Tpwer was even longer than the previous year for our brave bears!
In addition to the usual games and refreshments, this year 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!
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.
