CHILDREN’S Hospice South West supporters are being invited to enjoy some traditional summer fun in the grounds of one of the region’s best-loved country house hotels.

The grounds of Northcote Manor, at Burrington near Umberleigh, will host a charity cream tea and picnic on Sunday, August 9. Entry is free, but visitors will be asked to make a donation on the gate. In case of bad weather, the house will be open.

There will also be a croquet tournament, a prize draw and lots of children’s games to play, from 12noon to 5pm.

For those who prefer not to pack a lunch, special champagne picnics are available, if booked in advance.
