Hamilton Parents Centre organises inconjunction with Barnardos a Teddy Bears Picnic in the park each year.
It is part of the Hamilton Gardens Summer Festival, but this year was the 13th year it had been running.
To us it is our major fundraiser, we organise it all and we get to keep the funds made at the end.
So this was my first involvement and it was a blast. We were lucky with the weather but only just, there were a few trickles of rain, but nothing that didn't just cool everyone down.
The kids loved all the entertainment and it looked like there was some fun had by all the teddy bears too.
It was a long day for everyone. I got there at 7.30am and the boys got there at 9. We left at about 4.30pm after cleaning up.
Ben had a great time, he got to see The Funky Monkeys, a local kids entertainment group who have been on the tv.
So all in all a great cheap day out. Looking forward to being part of it again next year.
