Teddy Bears Picnic
Friday 3rd August 11am-2pm £2/£1
Outside The Tatton (ex Ordsall Cafe)

Full details here...


Parents of young children are invited to bring their favourite teddies to a Teddy Bears Picnic being held outside The Tatton (formerly the Ordsall Cafe) in Ordsall on Friday 3rd August.

It's being organised as part of World Breastfeeding Week by B.O.O.BS (Be Open on Breastfeeding Salford) which aims 'to encourage mums to be open about their experiences of breastfeeding, and to inspire others to have the confidence to breastfeed'.

On the day, there'll be teddy-themed crafts, a nursery rhyme session and a breastfeeding-friendly comfy area, plus stalls from local businesses. Kids and parents can also dress up as teddy bears and there's a prize for the best costume, while picnics can be brought along or there's picnic boxes available to buy.*

"We are looking forward to sharing this event with families across Salford, to bring them together and celebrate World Breastfeeding Week, as well as raising awareness for BOOBS" says Camilla Malinverni, who is helping to organise the event.

"New mums often need support in the early days and are isolated and stuck at home, especially if they are breastfeeding" she explains "We want to create a safe and welcoming environment where parents can come together for a few hours and share their stories over lunch. We know that hearing honest accounts of parenthood and breastfeeding really helps those that are struggling see there is a way through."

Project Manager for BOOBS and local mum Rachel adds "Breastfeeding gives all the nutrients your baby needs for the first six months of life, even in hot weather like we've had recently.

"It's also important for mums to keep well and eat good food herself, which is why we've created our picnic boxes with the help of Bambino café" she says "We hope lots of families will join us in celebrating World Breastfeeding Week, and finding out about our projects going on across Salford."
