Picnic time for Teddy Bears; .Teddy Bears' PICNIC, GISBOROUGH PRIORY WOODLAND GARDENS.

IF you go down to Gisborough Priory Woodland Gardens next Sunday you are sure of a big surprise.

That's because it's the day that teddy bears and their owners will be having a special picnic.

Young and old alike are invited to bring their teddies and their own picnic, or to sample the scrumptious refreshments on offer.

Homemade cakes, tea, coffee and squash will be available throughout the afternoon. The woodland picnic area offers a pleasant place to relax. There is a small play area nearby to explore.

Plans are afoot for adventurous teddy bears to whizz along on a specially constructed zip wire, giving them a bird's eye view of the gardens, before landing safely back in the arms of their owners.

Gisborough priory project volunteer, Bruce Robinson, said, "The revamped teddy bear zip wire is being prepared so that teddies can enjoy a ride in it."

There will also be a teddy bear trail - try and find the pictures of some of the bears coming to the picnic hidden in the woods and use them to work out what the bears' favourite food is.

Eagle-eyed visitors may also spot the woolly teddy bears picnic, expertly knitted by Guisborough Knit Wits, which will be on display in the gardens.

On a more relaxing note, teddy bear themed stories will be told throughout the afternoon in the woodland storytelling area. Alternatively, why not create a picture of your teddy using the free art materials on offer or colour in one of the teddy bear picnic pictures.

This is the third time that a teddy bears' picnic has been held in the woodland gardens. Last year's teddy bears' picnic was popular with teddies young and old who spent a delightful afternoon exploring the woodland gardens. Tell all teddy bear owners to come along ? To get to the teddy bears' picnic come through the Gisborough Priory entrance, next to St Nicholas' Church, between 1pm to 3.30pm on August 14 and head for the woodland gardens. Entrance is free.
