Morden goes Eurovision

On the same weekend as the Eurovision Song Contest Morden is hoping to score more than nil points by hosting a European Village Market in Abbotsbury Road, from 9am – 6pm Friday 14 May to Sunday 16 May 2004.

The European Village Market will feature products, traditional cooking, music and costumes from a number of countries including France, Italy, Spain and Germany. The market, which is organized by PBOrganisation Ltd, has already been a great success in neighbouring Kingston upon Thames.

Merton Council arranged for the market to come to Morden after residents said they wanted to see events like this in the town centre. The council is working hard to encourage more visitors to shop in Morden and are urging residents to support the market this weekend. If it is successful it could become a regular event.

Future markets planned in the borough include:
· French Market in Wimbledon on 11, 12 and June
· Italian Market in Morden on 16, 17 and 18 July.
