The favourite teddy bear in this year’s “Reet Royal” Teddy Bear Trail, as chosen by trailers, was “May Queen”, who could be found under an umbrella in Jesmond Community Orchard. Runner up was “King Cuddles”.

There was also a prize draw from amongst all competitors. The overall winner of a super voucher from EXIT Newcastle was Oscar (aged 9); other winners were Hugo and Ralph (5 years and under); Stella (6-8 years); Kaitlin and Emily (9-13 years); and Geoff (14+).
