Top Picnic for Teddy Bears
20th August 2013
Armed with their cuddly toys, 12 children and four members of staff visited Lord Faringdon’s estate for a picnic in the grounds last week. The children had access to the estate’s private woodland for the picnic, and were even treated to an ice-cream by Lord Faringdon during the visit.
Buscot Park is the family home of Lord Faringdon, who looks after the property on behalf of the National Trust. It houses the family collection of pictures, furniture, ceramics and art, known as the Faringdon Collection, which is displayed in the house.
Nursery Manager Steph Dorling, said: “We would like to thank Lord Faringdon for his hospitality and the generous and kind team at Buscot Park who treated us so very well. The children are still talking about it, especially Lord Faringdon’s dog, Smudge. We felt truly spoilt, and we were all even given an ice cream!
“We had lots of people commenting on how lovely it was to see young children in the parklands and so many commented on the good behavior of the children, which was a testament to them and our staff. It was a lovely trip and one we would definitely like to repeat again soon.”
