Sun shines brightly for Wells House teddy bears pic­nic

Gorey Guardian - - NEWS -

WELLS HOUSE, in Bal­lyed­mond, was the ideal set­ting for a Teddy Bears’ pic­nic re­cently which proved to be a re­sound­ing suc­cess.

The fact the sun shone brightly added greatly to the en­joy­ment of the day as chil­dren were able to wan­der over to Goldilocks, at the foun­tain, or the Elec­tric Zoo - which saw them drive around a ded­i­cated area on mo­torised fluffy ‘an­i­mals’.

Over 850 car loads of vis­i­tors ar­rived at the iconic land­mark site for the pic­nic and speak­ing to this news­pa­per, the house’s Events Man­ager, Maria Walsh, said ev­ery­one in­volved in or­gan­is­ing it was de­lighted with the turnout.

‘There was face-paint­ing as well which was very pop­u­lar along with other ac­tiv­i­ties,’ she said.

The house will play host to an­other event on July 8, called Wells En­chanted, which will see char­ac­ters like the Mat Hat­ter in at­ten­dance and vis­i­tors will also get to go on a fairy hunt.
