 Testimonials- Let's Go With The Children

Best Places for a Family Picnic 2012 with Lets Go with the Children   



There is nothing that causes more excitement in the house than the preparations for a picnic, whatever the weather is doing outside! Digging out the basket, the rugs, the footballs and cricket bats, deciding on drinks, getting inventive with the sandwiches or just raiding what is in the fridge, piling clothes for all eventualities into the car; it is all part of the fun.

Children really don't mind where they picnic - beach, field, hill top, woodlands, waterside - it is all going to be great family fun. Grown-ups thug might like to be more discerning so we have pulled together some of our favourite picnic places for you to take the children on a fabulous day out…… plus don't forget your brolly! Have a great day out with the kids.
