On Thursday 22nd May Privett Village Hall was in use for polling so we took our bears (and children) on a visit to the Watercress line.
We got on the steam train at Alresford and travelled to Ropley where we were met by Mrs Bear who was in quite a state because she
had somehow managed to mislay her picnic.
We organised a search party and soon discovered her sandwiches and cake in all sorts of odd places and her flask, which was high up on a lamp post!
Unfortunately it had begun to rain quite heavily, so we decided to picnic indoors. After lunch most of us went for a walk to the meadow and we got very wet!
It was soon time to get back on the train and Mrs Bear waved us off on the next part of our journey to Alton. There was just enough time to buy some cups of much needed coffee for the Mums and Dads as well as a few treats before we were off on our way home back to Alresford.
It was a lovely day out despite the weather and Mrs Bear was a great hit!
