A great picnic is all about good food and better company. We've already got the company sorted, but what about the food? As inspiration for this trip, we've chosen Valentines Park, where Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry spent several years putting Britain's best amateur bakers through their paces on The Great British Bake Off.
Mmm, fresh scones, iced buns and cupcakes. What delicious treats would go in your perfect picnic hamper?
As part of our schedule of summer holiday play schemes, we will be organising a picnic in Valentines Park near Ilford on August 14th. This is one of a series of summer park picnics across London that will also see us take the children to:
- Lloyd Park on Tuesday, August 7th
- Regent's Park on Tuesday, August 14th
- Olympic Park on Thursday, August 23rd
- Valentines Park on Thursday, August 30th
We will arrange food for those children attending, as well as fun and games. Places are available to all of our disabled children, as well as their siblings. So this is a great opportunity for parents and carers to benefit from some respite time. But beyond this, it also encourages integration of disabled children among their siblings and peers.
The park picnics will be scheduled for different days of the week so that all children have the opportunity to attend and enjoy at least one, if not all, of the trips.
