It's National Picnic Week 2020 Celebrating a Great British Tradition
What better way to spend a lazy summer's afternoon then in a lovely location with the family, playing games and tucking in to a picnic. National picnic week celebrates all those memories and images of blue skies, green grass, blankets and hampers of food.
With the weather set to be a scorcher this week, we've been stocking up on some of things you might need for a great picnic day out.
Although the concept of the picnic originated in France, the British have very much taken it to their hearts. It is reckoned the average person in the UK goes on 3 picnics a year, enjoying the sunshine and the fresh air it brings. An inexpensive day out, a picnic provides the chance for quality family time playing traditional games such as rounders or just relaxing with a good book and some music.
