    Teddy Bears’ Picnic at Resthaven Aberfoyle Park

    On 26 July, Resthaven Aberfoyle Park at 100 Hub Drive, Aberfoyle Park, held their annual Teddy Bears’ Picnic, with many fluffy plus-ones in attendance.

    After weeks of preparing hand-crafted decorations by residents, staff and volunteers, the site was ready for a whimsical afternoon tea.

    Lifestyle Coordinator, Navneet Kaur, says, ‘Our Lifestyle team are always looking for fun ideas to engage residents, and our annual Teddy Bears’ Picnic is always a big hit!’

    ‘Many of the bears have been hand-knitted by residents, and so there were many proud conversations on knitting abilities and procedures.’

    Residents enjoyed showcasing their fluffy companions to the group, whilst enjoying a high tea of delicious sandwiches and cakes.

    ‘In the spirit of our theme, we presented a short film on teddy bear history, and we of course played the famous 1907 song, ‘The Teddy Bears’ Picnic’.’

    ‘Residents really loved it, commenting on their excitement to bring along a new bear to next year’s event!’
