It is one of the nation's favourite family pastimes and now The Children's Society is launching its first National Picnic Week.
And while you might have hampers and blankets at the ready the charity is offering everyone the chance to adopt a teddy to take along as well.
During the event next week, from August 11 to 17, the society's shops throughout the region will be offering pre-loved donated teddies that can be exchanged for favourite childhood memories or a small donation along with other picnic bargains to make the day special.

Society spokesman Penny Nicholls said: “Most of us remember the enjoyment of a childhood picnic. The Children's Society wants everyone to organise a picnic with family and friends this summer. It couldn't be easier - all you need is a patch of grass or a picnic blanket, some sandwiches, snacks and games to enjoy a fun day out, making memories that last a lifetime.”
