Get yourself down to Forest of Marston Vale this Sunday (July 3) for a free teddy bears’ picnic.

The community forest charity is hosting the family event at its Shocott Spring site in Bedford and is inviting anyone who lives in Shortstown, Cotton End and New Cardington to join.

The team will be running free guided walks throughout the day for grown-ups to find out more about the wildlife at the community woodland as well as games and activities for little ones to get involved.

Visitors are encouraged to bring along a picnic – there will also be hot and cold drinks and ice cream available to buy on the day.

The event starts at 1pm and finishes at 4pm. There is no parking on-site, so visitors are encouraged to walk, cycle or scoot to the event and enter via the entrance off High Road.
