Teddy bears and their friends are invited to St George’s, Badshot Lea, tomorrow (Sunday, August 18) for a teddy bears’ picnic at 11.30am.
The picnic, to which all bears and other favourite characters – and their human friends – are invited, will take place as part of the regular Worship for All service which takes place every Sunday at 11.30am.
Lesley Crawley said: “Worship for All is for the whole family and aims to share something of the love of God with all ages, and to be a fun, welcoming service. We hope as many people as possible will round up their bears, big and small, old and young, and come to the teddy bears’ picnic on Sunday.”

If you have a bike you don’t want, or a bike that needs servicing, or you haven’t got a bike and would like one, come along to Bike Start in Browning Barracks, Alisons Road, Aldershot, and in doing so raise money for The Source, a Christian charity which supports young people who are particularly vulnerable or in challenging circumstances.
Bike Start operates on a Monday and Thursday and, as well as servicing bikes either for individuals or to sell them through eBay, Bike Start can teach you how to maintain a bike. It trains groups and individuals in bike maintenance skills and will run charity days and team bonding days for organisations.
The Source works with 11- to 25-year-olds who are isolated, vulnerable, struggling at school, in trouble with the law, have challenging family relationships, are homeless, in care, live on their own or are young parents. It offers counselling, life coaching, mentoring, anger management programmes and support for young parents.
Ellie Jones, director of The Source, said: “We are so very grateful to everyone who supports BikeStart through donating bikes, buying bikes and coming to us for servicing and repairs. You have made such a difference to the lives of the young people we support and empower.”
