Teddy Bear Picnic

Back in October the Alliance had the pleasure of attending the City of Cockburn’s Teddy Bear Picnic, an event which has replaced the previous Hello Baby festival at which we have had an annual presence for several years. The day was a great success and we had a wonderful time liaising with the public and like-minded organisations. Copies of Beat the Bugs books were a hit with the kids, and our newly printed pamphlets were handed out to the parents and grandparents accompanying them.

The Alliance was represented by Sharon Swaney and Amber Heaney along with regular event volunteer Kylie Sturgess. We displayed some of the puppets for our upcoming Beat the Bugs puppet show. These were a huge attraction and talking point. The event’s photographer took a great photo of Amber and Kylie ‘puppeteering’ with neighbouring stallholders daughter Maggie, which was published on the events Facebook page. See thephoto below along with other shots from the day.
