Hi all - the Wimbledon & Wandsworth branch of the NCT is holding a Teddy Bear's picnic at Cannizaro Park on Fri 8th July at 2pm. The picnic is open to all pre-school age children (4s and under) but they must be accompanied by a teddy!
For £3 a teddy, payable on entry, an action packed programme of entertainment will be provided throughout the afternoon; a chance to win a prize for the Best Dressed Teddy as well as a raffle with fantastic prizes on offer.
Please do bring a picnic, as only light refreshments will be available. Advance booking is not required.
So when is this coffee going to take place? i tried joining you in the past, but have never been able to turn up for one reason or another. Maybe i'll be able to make this one, if it's not on a Wed. Look forward to it.
lol JT - hadn't even thought that other people might associate a different meaning to Wimbledon. Ds1 got really upset when Blue Cow went to Wimbledon (i.e. Tennis) on Story Makers the other day - he kept saying "that's not Wimbledon. Where's Starbucks?" Georgie - the village shop owners always complain that the tennis people never make it that far so you should be OK - just avoid Church Road/Southfields.
Yes, Monday 13th June. So it's me and GeorgieM. Anyone else? Pamina? Lockets? Bex? Cristina? Cottonball? Cas73? Who've I forgotten?
I don't think I'll be able to make it as I have a driving lesson till 11 a.m. then some NCT post-natal ladies coming over at 1 pm. If I get really well organised, though, I might manage half an hour. I'll text or phone Georgie after I finish my driving lesson to see if you're still there.
A few years back Federer rented a flat in a house near us. We left home during a Radio 4 interview with him and then saw the radio & TV crews outside his house and the interview was still on. It was a very strange experience. (He'd just won the championship.) The flat upstairs from us was rented to an English female tennis player a few years back (I forgot her name). Ours would never qualify, far too messy and too many children's toys & things, although I suppose with the fee you'd get a very good spring cleaning done!
Did you meet up? How was it? I had a long driving lesson so couldn't make it in the end. I made the lesson even longer by making a last-minute mistake, so had to go back and re-do that bit of the route and change those d**n gears sooner. When's the next meet-up?
