Halsdon home; ‘top’ picnic spot
A pensioner’s Halsdon home has been named one of the top dozen picnic spots in Britain.
The home of Eve Connor, 75, on Hulham Road, won the indoor category in Ribena’s hunt for the spots that best capture our Britain’s love affair with picnics.
The picture acted as proof that a picnic in the home can be just as much fun as in the great outdoors.
The competition, supported by The Wildlife Trust, identified perfect picnic spots for every occasion, with other categories including waterside, urban, countryside, unusual and family fun.
The photo depicts Eve’s two grandchildren - Megan Howard, age four, and Joe Howard, aged seven.
Eve Connor said: “This photo of my grandchildren ‘eating’ in the kitchen always makes me smile and I’m glad to see that it makes others smile too.”
Nick Baker, vice president of Trust said: “This entry captures the kind of picnic all Brits have had in an emergency, when everything’s packed to go out and the rain’s blowing horizontal.
