If you go down to Armley Park this Sunday you’ll be sure of a big surprise…it is the Friends of Armley and Gott’s Park Teddy Bear’s Picnic, writes Lou Cunningham.

Meet at the water fountain at 12pm for a Teddy Bear trail up to the Rose Garden in Gotts Park, where there will be entertainment from the amazing Professor Fiddlesticks and, of course, a picnic until 3pm.

We have some picnic blankets and will be providing a basic picnic and drinks but feel free to bring more. All welcome and remember to bring your teddies!

Sunday’s the day the Armley Teddies have their picnic.
