If you go down to Mill Crescent today . . .
Stuffed animals of all shapes and sizes were taken to Mill Crescent Kindergarten on Thursday for a Teddy Bears’ Picnic. The youngsters helped make rainbow cake and honey sandwiches for the special occasion.
New head teacher Sandi Frearson said there were some new children starting who liked to bring their favourite teddy along for comfort, and the picnic was a nice way to make them feel welcome.
After lunch, the kids were taken on a surprise bear hunt and treated to some teddy-shaped cookies and watermelon. Nicola Stewart went along.
Tameika Darlington and Dean Cover, both four, with their different-sized teddies. We’re not scared:
