Clacton and Frinton Gazette: Pre-school celebrates birthday with teddy bear's picnic Pre-school celebrates birthday with teddy bear's picnic

A BABY and toddler group celebrated its first birthday with a Teddy Bear’s picnic.

The Caterpillar group met for the first time in Thorrington Village Hall last April after local mums said there were not enough activities going on for their tots.

Yesterday the group run by Ladybirds Pre-School, which meets every Wednesday, celebrated the anniversary by bringing their favourite teddy bear for a picnic.

The youngsters then enjoyed singing followed by parachute games.

Manager Kathryn Long said: “We’ve got about 60 on the role and it’s really popular.

“There was nothing in the village before we started it.

“It’s really grown in size and we have some lovely mums who have supported really well over the last year.”
