A TEDDY bears' picnic party – complete with a competition for the best dressed – helped one Ipswich toddler's group celebrate a special birthday.

The Roundabout Club meets at St Augustine's Church Hall during term-time on Tuesday afternoons and Thursday mornings.

A 25th birthday was good enough reason to party on down to the woods or in this case to Broke Hall recreation ground for a traditional teddy bears' knees-up.

Mayor of Ipswich, Richard Risebrow, judged the best dressed teddy competition and pronounced Laura Thrower the winner.

Sainsbury's at Warren Heath donated the birthday cake and more than 30 families with co-founder, Jean Merry, and committee members from 1977 to 2001, helped eat it.

On the club's 15th birthday an oak tree was planted on Broke Hall recreation ground and this year's party took place nearby.
