A TEDDY bears picnic proved a hit with families as around 700 people attended the annual event.

Held at Melford Hall in Long Melford for the fifth year running, the picnic and activity day attracted plenty of cuddly creatures and their owners.

Veronica Stuart, events co-ordinator at the hall, said numbers were up on last year and a day of fun was had by all.

“It went beautifully and I think we must have had nearly 700 people come along,” she said.

“There were lots of families having picnics and the weather was in our favour.”

Activities included drawing and colouring in a bear, a treasure hunt and a name the bear competition.

The next event at the hall will be an autumn fair, which will be held on September 17 and 18.
