Teddy bear picnic in Kelling

Children from a north Norfolk school took their teddy bears out in the sunshine for a special picnic.

Pupils from Kelling Primary School took part in the picnic event at Kelling Heath Holiday Park, north Norfolk, which marked National Picnic Week.

The group of 15 five, six and seven-year olds and their teddies took part in a storytelling walk around the park's woodland and heathland with Norwich storyteller Dave Tongue.

Kelling Heath then provided a picnic lunch for the visitors, which took place next to the park's wildlife pond. The children got the chance to take part in a pond dipping session to learn more about the abundance of frogs, dragonflies and insects in their natural habitats.

Sarah Nichols, activities and events coordinator at Kelling Heath Holiday Park, said: 'The children and their teddy bears had a wonderful day at Kelling Heath. Whilst we see many staying guests each year we also like to forge links with the local community especially local young people teaching them about the importance of their natural environment, and it's great to get children outside so they can learn about it hands-on.'
