How about an informal Picnic & Play in the park?

Since there is no knowing the weather I've decided to pick a date and follow up on an idea several of  the parents had: to organise another picnic and play in the Abbotts Barton park! I was thinking to do this around lunch time again, so that everybody could bring their own picnic and a blanket to sit on and maybe some outdoor toys that the children could use to play with. I could bring along these items to play with:

  • A big inflatable gym ball (that's just been living in our shed for the last seven years, poor thing!)
  • A football
  • An egg and spoon race set

Picnic time would be noon to 2pm (or longer if the weather is nice), Sunday 7 July 14 July. It would be nice if you could leave a message in the comments if you plan to come along!

Since there is no setup required nobody needs to come early but we should all try our best and remove any rubbish afterwards.

Of course if it's rainy or wet in any way we'll have to cancel but let's hope for the best!
