HUNDREDS of people descended on Garth Park, Bicester, to enjoy a day of free fun.
The gates of Garth Park, in Launton Road, opened on Wednesday, August 1, for the annual Teddy Bears’ Picnic and Activity Day.
A host of activities for children and young people aged up to 16, were sponsored by Bicester Village and organised by Bicester Town Council, including Go Karts, a climbing wall, obstacle course, exotic animal experience, children’s show, messy play, sculpting, drumming workshops and a mountain bike track.
During the day mayor Sean Gaul, Mayoress, his wife Louise and their son Miles also judged the Best Dressed Teddy contest.
Mrs Gaul said: “It was a surprisingly difficult task given the fact that all the teddy bears and soft toys were lovely, and personal to each child.
“All the children looked very proud of their efforts in getting their teddy bears prepared and dressed in some fantastic costumes, we saw an astronaut, a choir singer, various princess teddy bears and there was even a teddy who was around 3ft tall and bigger than its owner.
“In the end we gave first prize to a cuddly octopus who had been lovingly dressed up. Our son Miles, who is soon to turn four, absolutely loves octopus’ which was what led us to the decision.”
Councillor Gaul added: “The day was great and much busier than it has been in previous years which is testament to the fact the Bicester people are very fond of their annual teddy bears picnic.
“For my part, I am very grateful to the hard-working Bicester Town Council team for their unrelenting efforts to provide us all with great events all year round
A chance to meet your Mayor, Cllr Sean Gaul with a welcome drink and canapes at the Kings Arms Hotel and Restaurant in Bicester on Thursday 9th August commencing at 7pm.
Tickets are £10 and can be purchased from Bicester Town Council offices in Garth Park.
