Nelson's Journey took to Chapelfield yesterday to bring a day of fun and to remember loved ones who have died.

The team invited visitors to bring a picnic to sit in the designated picnic space and even have their photo in an oversized deck chair.

The main event of the day was the opportunity to help out with weaving a giant picnic basket.

Visitors were also asked to write a message and attach it to the basket as it was taking shape.

The event was organised to promote the charity's upcoming Purple Picnic week.

It is a week where schools, businesses and individuals hold their own Purple Picnic to remember someone special that has died.
