CHILDREN packed nothing but the bear necessities’ when they joined a teddy bears’ picnic... on the Isle of Dogs of all places. They brought their teddies with them and had the bare-faced cheek to join in a bear and spoon race at Millwall Park

CHILDREN packed nothing but the 'bear necessities' when they joined a teddy bears' picnic... on the Isle of Dogs of all places.

They brought their teddies with them and had the bare-faced cheek to join in a bear and spoon race at Millwall Park.

The toddlers also learnt what bears need to live and enjoyed story-telling. About bears, of course.

About 100 children and their parents joined the teddy bears' picnic organised by Tower Hamlets council as part of a week of park events.
