The young people gathered in the Guide headquarters in Lawn Vista for a crafting session before going on a guided journey to the community orchard for games and the picnic.

Every participant was given a hand-knitted teddy bear to take home, made by Trefoil members, friends and other local knitters. 

A spokesperson for the Sidmouth Trefoil Guild said: “Every bear was an individual but all were cute and cuddly, with happy little faces. Thank you, ladies, for all your hard work.” 

The Trefoil Guild supports Girlguiding UK and its members include former Guides and Scouts, along with affiliate members who subscribe to the aims of the movement.
