Remember you're a Womble...

Our more grown up readers remember the Wombles, those furry, brown creatures who lived on Wimbledon Common and had a rather helpful recycling habit.

This weekend we were lucky enough to have a real Womble visit the Livinggreen Centre - something of a special occasion for us here at Morden Hall Park.

Eagle eyed readers will notice that this is no ordinary Womble, this is in fact Haydon the Womble, the mascot of AFC Wimbledon. Haydon made a special trip to the park to celebrate the launch of the new exhibition in our centre which showcases some of the fantastic community art work that AFCW do with local schools and other groups.

The new exhibition is called 'Flying the Flag for Haydon' and will be on display from Sunday 15th January until Friday 10th February. It features photos, drawings and some fantastic flags, like this one, which have been produced by local schools.
