Bearaking News..................Teddytastic News !!
There has been a frenzy of activity behind the scenes in the last 10 days with discussions as to how we could run a teddy bear festival this year with so few numbers stepping up to the plate. This week two of us met up and agreed that running the event on a smaller scale just this year would determine the way ahead for future years, if any, of the festival....
However, as of yesterday, 3 ladies have come forward to offer to coordinate the festival in the future. They will come on board this year and, along with a few more that have offered help behind the scenes; we are delighted to announce that
“there will be a Great Ellingham Teddy Bear Festival 2015...”
Make a bear of your own theme-anything goes!
