Teddy Bears celebrate Royal Wedding at Norwich picnic party

Residents living in a courtyard in the centre of Norwich have enjoyed a special Teddy Bears's picnic to celebrate the Royal Wedding.

People gathered around the fish pond at Mandells Court off Princes Street to listen to music by Celtic harpist Rod Davidson, while cakes had been donated by the nearby Briton Arms and the antique shop in Elm Hill had also donated a special Teddy Bear guest.

Lorna Tucker, who has lived in the court the longest, came up with the idea as a way of bringing residents together.

'Everybody has come together for the Teddy Bears' picnic and the music has been magical,' she said. 'People have brought their own Teddy bears and with them and brought something for the community table. Every Teddy has got a number and I am hoping that everybody goes home with a bear.'
