Kids Discover Commonwealth Of Local Shops


If you happened to spot a swath (or even a clump) of children wandering up and down Central Road, peering in shop windows and scribbling feverishly on bits of paper on Saturday morning, worry not. 'Twas the great Worcester Park Iceland Commonwealth Games thingy.

Some regular readers may remember from a previous post the special children's Commonwealth Games event which took the form of a themed quiz, involving finding the Commonwealth countries and territories shown in the shop windows. 

Richard Johnson who organised the event said:
"Many thanks to those who took on the challenge. Hopefully (whether you were younger or older), you all had some fun!"
Below is a list of all the traders who took part and the Commonwealth Teams they displayed in their windows. Special thanks to the exceedingly generous and community spirited team at Iceland, who hosted the event and supplied all the prizes.
