Spring’s well and truly here and, thanks to NSW Government’s ‘treat’ for fully vaccinated people who don’t live in LGAs of concern, we can kick back with four (also fully vaxxed) mates from Monday, September 13. After months of staring at our own four walls, we’re sure that a leisurely afternoon with friends is just what the doctor ordered. So, to help you make the most of the sunshine and good times ahead, we’ve whipped up a little picnic prize for inoculated Sydneysiders.
We’ve teamed up with Rosie Spritz to put together 20 exclusive and oh-so-chic picnic sessions for you and four friends this spring. Kicking off on Saturday, September 17 and happening every weekend until Sunday, October 17, each professionally styled picnic session will run for two hours and include everything you need for a leisurely afternoon in the park. Your lavish basket will be filled to the brim with cheese and charcuterie boards by way of Platter Up, as well as some Rosie Rosé Spritzes, which will be served on ice and topped with fresh raspberries. Your picnic set-up will be luxe, too, with everything from plush pillows and beach umbrellas to picnic blankets and low tables. You and your four picnic pals will also score four-packs of Rosie’s brand-new spritz flavours, Rosie Elderflower and Rosie Prosecco Rosé, which are set to hit the shelves in early October.
If you live in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, you could be sipping, snacking and soaking up the sun in Centennial Park on September 18–19 and October 9–10, or Rushcutters Bay Park on October 2–3. If you live in the inner west, your park-in-proximity will be Camperdown Memorial Rest Park on September 25–26. And for those who live in or near the inner city, you can opt to win a session at Mrs Macquarie’s Chair in the Royal Botanic Garden on October 16–17. No matter which park you’re heading to, there’ll be two sittings — 11.30am–1.30pm and 2.30–4.30pm — on the day. Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, location and time slot will be appointed with consideration of winners’ residential address and availability. If none of the aforementioned parks are in your LGA, you can check if any are within your five-kilometre bubble.
Of course, all picnic sessions will run in accordance with NSW Government requirements, which means, should you win, you and your mates will need to bring along your ID and proof of double-vaccination. And because these crazy times require, there’ll be hand sanitiser and face masks available on site, plus cleaning between picnic sessions.
