Picnic ... Take 2!

If at first you don't succeed, put your faith in the Child of Prague! The weather got in the way of our initial effort to put on our annual Picnic in the Park. We are happy to report that, following ostentatious scenes of unseemly and obsequious beseeching at the altars of the Sun Gods, backhanders to pliable weather forecasters, even intercessions to a wax-coated Infant Jesus of Prague statue, Picnic in the Park goes ahead this Sunday.

While the forecast for the afternoon to be dry it is worth remembering that we are now into the 'season of mists and mellow fruitfulness'. Bring coats and ground-sheets / camping chairs.

Picnickers can look forward to a lively mix of entertainment including a fabulous puppet show, a children’s arts zone, obstacles races, football skills, live music, hoola-hooping, face-painting, hair-braiding and much more.

The organisers encourage everyone to bring a picnic basket and a rug or camping seats. Civil Defence will be on hand to deal with any minor emergencies.
