Julia’s House Teddy Bear’s Picnic
Having had to postpone the Julia’s House Teddy Bears Picnic that was originally to be held on Saturday 17th August due to high winds posing a potential risk to visitors and helpers, everyone involved was hoping for better weather when it was re-scheduled for the following Saturday.
Although there were a number of dark clouds around when we set up our stall, we were still hopefully there would be some takers for our egg and bacon sandwiches:
However, the great British summer weather struck again with a vengeance as we found ourselves in the middle of a terrific deluge:
The storyteller was all ready to tell his stories, and Councillor Jane Burton, Mayor of Devizes, arrived to help judge the Teddy Bear competition with Iain Wallace. The only thing that was missing was some children and their families!
Oh well, at least a few of the organisers dodged the showers to grab a sandwich from us, and who knows, maybe the weather will be kinder to us next year?!
