News – Your summer picnic sorted


We love a good picnic, who doesn’t? You can’t beat sitting in the sun, enjoying a drink and sharing nibbles and tasty dishes, living for a slow afternoon, even if that is just for a few hours. A picnic can bring people together and it’s also the perfect time to relax in the beautiful outdoors to share and eat all sorts of food whilst you’re there. 

To help you plan your next picnic, we have put together some tips for your al fresco feast and a list of fantastic buys from the Grosvenor Shopping Centre.

  • Pack soft things at the top so they don’t get squashed
  • Use ice packs to ensure everything stays cool
  • Pack heavy items such as bottles at the bottom
  • Insulate your bag

So, what should you take with you?
