Bienvenue dans le Parc de Worcester!

Worcester Park has gone all Gallic today, with the start of the two-day French Market, which is open today and tomorrow from 10am to 3pm.

The genuinely French stallholders are setting up along Central Road ready to sell their genuinely French food, crafts and delicacies - everything, we are promised, from garlic, patisserie, crepes and tartiflette to Provencal soaps, wooden flowers and scarves.
Let's hope that this is one invasion of foreigners that pleases the conservative folk of Worcester Park - and seeing as they are here for two days only, that should be too little time for somebody to start a petition.

Whatever you (and I) might had said in the past about Sutton Council neglecting Worcester Park as its 'forgotten borough', it's good to see them innovating and using money from the Outer London Fund to put on events such as this in little old KT4.

Meanwhile, for those craving the more genteel and traditionally British activity of detonating explosives and burning a Catholic at the stake the 4th Worcester Park Scouts will be holding their annual community fireworks display on Saturday (10th November) at 8pm at the HQ in Braemar Road, Worcester Park.
