Residents in a Moorlands town have come together to enjoy a community picnic.

The Bring & Share Community Picnic took place at Tean Road Recreation Ground in Cheadle last Tuesday (July 26).

Starting at 1pm, the community event was organised by Cheadle Town Council’s ‘Community Reassurance Programme,’ which runs at the site.

The programme has been interacting with community members and organising activities on Tean Road Recreation Ground in Cheadle since last Summer.

Youth worker Nicky Derrett organised the picnic for all to enjoy.

She said: “Last week, to encourage health and wellbeing, we held a bring and share picnic at the Tean Road Recreational Ground where we hosted a tea tent offering a variety of teas free to taste.

Whilst regular tea is always a winner, I wanted to promote a few healthier varieties grown here at the park such as mint, lemon balm and Chamomile.

Mint is known for the relieve of tension headaches, digestive upsets and clogged sinuses. Lemon Balm for reducing stress and infections.

Chamomile can help to improve sleep, reduce inflammation and cold symptoms.”

Nicky continued: “There was a good turn out from locals on the day who brought biscuits, some homemade. A perfect accompaniment with a fresh cuppa.
“The tea tent was a hit all afternoon at the park with a steady flow of interest.”
Micky said that she had received good feedback about the event. She said: “One participant said: “A nice touch from Cheadle Council. It should be a regular thing even if they have to charge a little bit for a cuppa. Having tea (I tried all of them) and a biscuit gave me the opportunity to stop and chat with other people.”

While another said: “Lovely to sample locally grown herb tea at the park, the chamomile was delicious and tasted even better served in a china cup and saucer.”
“Another said: “What a lovely afternoon, sitting in the sun drinking tea with friends. I’ve never had vegan biscuits until today, very tasty considering there was no butter in them.”
Nicky added: “I am impressed that even the youngsters wanted to join in, there was a good mix of all ages tea tasting.”
Tyler, aged ten, said: “I tried all of the different teas and my favourite was the Lemon Balm.”
Ryan, aged 14, said: “It was good, everyone together with a brew and eating biscuits.”
Nine-year-old Kobi said: “I tasted all the teas and all the biscuits”

And Kai, aged 11, added: “The tea was really nice, lots of choice.”
