If you go down to the woods today you are sure for a big surprise.
Children enjoyed a teddy bears’ picnic at Havering Museum whilst learning about the history of teddy bears.
They also got creative when it came to decorating their cakes before they had a picnic with their friends.
Ellen Owen, from the museum, said: “The parents and grandparents enjoyed the event as much as the children did. They reminisced about their own childhood teddy bears and how sometimes the tatty and old look ones are the ones loved the most.
“They had such a great time that they didn’t want to go home.”

The event was one of the children’s activities organised by the museum. During October half-term children can enjoy a fancy dress party and competition. It will include Nelly Asbo, a witch who will tell stories and the history of witches in Havering. They include how witches were thrown in Loam Pond, which was at the bottom of Market Place, and in the pond opposite the green in Havering-atte-Bower. If they drowned it would prove they were not witches.
The competition will be on October 30, from 11am at the museum, in High Street, Romford.
