More than a picnic for bears

You will never believe your eyes at The Nelson Mail Teddy Bears Picnic.

Teddies that gathered at the woods at Isel Park in Stoke yesterday got up to all sorts of surprising activities.

They had fashion makeovers, workouts, music lessons, school lessons, jumped through flaming hoops, went on fairground rides, had a tug-of-war and, of course, a picnic.

It was a bit much for some, but the St John Teddy Beer Ambulance was there to help.

Even the weather came to the party with a fine day for the free event, part of the Nelson City Council's Summer in the Nelson programme.
