Teddy Bears’ Picnics at Apley Farm Shop

Teddy Bears’ Picnics at Apley Farm Shop
Children from Shropshire are being invited to bring their teddy bears & go down to the woods this summer at Apley Farm Shop between Bridgnorth & Telford. Every childhood should include a Teddy Bears’ Picnic & there are six Wednesday picnic dates to choose from.

Reminiscent of the famous song by Bratton & Kennedy, a magical picnic area has been prepared & every teddy bear who's been good is sure of a treat that day. There will be lots of marvellous things to eat & wonderful games to play!

Caroline Talbot, Playbarn manager explained “We give a wonderfully wholesome country summer experience. Children & their parents start & finish in Pigg’s Playbarn. They head off on the Skylark Nature Trail with teddies & picnics, play games, listen to “We’re going on a bear hunt” & sing (you’ve guessed it… !?) “If you go down to the woods today”.

We expect many children will want to make a day out of it & try our Maize Maze (we expect it will open 28 July), bale tunnel, tyre mountain, visit Scotty’s Donkeys & Animal Park. If that’s not enough, Paint & Create’s pottery painting & craft studio is in the centre of our lovely shopping courtyard.

Classic Motor Day is the highlight of July, when on Sunday 15 July, over 200 classic vehicle owners share their passion with visitors. It’s another free Apley event running 10-4pm & always a great day out for all the family. Enjoy a barbecue & ice cream or Sunday lunch in the Creamery Café.

On top of all this, during August, we have more children’s activities to help working parents & keep children outdoors, busy & active.
