National Picnic Day is an opportunity for everybody to share some time (and food) with friends and family, languishing, lolling and laughing

Submit your most original picnic pics for the chance to win a hamper

25th August 2010 – In celebration of centuries of picnicking, social entrepreneur and outdoor events planner Pete Lawrence has declared Monday 30th August as National Picnic Day.

“Sharing good times and ideas is at the very heart of my new venture,” said Lawrence. “People have been having picnics for centuries whatever the weather. I wanted to celebrate the sociable and fun side of this great British pastime as a warm up to an exciting new social networking community that will be launched on 7th September called Pic-Nic Village (more about meeting than eating). National Picnic Day is an opportunity for everybody to share some time (and food) with friends and family, languishing, lolling and laughing.”

Chilling out under the dappled shade of an ancient Oak, lolling by the still waters of a lake or sheltering from the crashing surf a beach are all great examples of how to spend time with a picnic on Monday 30th August.

The National Pic-Nic day website gives further information to anyone interested in planning a picnic - including what to take, sample picnic treats and some fun facts and quotes about picnicking too.

People are invited to share their ideas and picnic experiences too. Pic-Nic Village will be offering three lucky picnickers the chance to win a jolly nice organic food hamper worth £70 from The Fine Food Store in exchange for sending in some picnic pics, with some words on where you went, who joined you and the contents of your basket. The most original entry will be rewarded with this fabulous prize that certainly puts any warm curly egg mayo sarnies to shame.

So, put the date in your diary and start calling, social networking and even talking to friends and family. Spread the word so they can spread the sandwiches – Monday 30th August is National Picnic Day.
