What to take on a picnic; How the picnic is our lockdown spring saviour!

We can meet up with loved ones finally, hooray! Finally, this horrid year is coming to an end, but only if we keep sensible and safe whilst lockdown is easing. We need to remember ‘hands, face, space and fresh air’. So, it stands to reason we meet with those missed pals outside, BBQs are all well and good but the real star of this spring season is the humble picnic!
