Wokingham came second
Wokingham’s Checkout Manager, Jane Murdock, reports on the branch’s participation in the recent Wokingham Carnival Parade.
On Saturday 11 June, 134 entered a float in the Wokingham Carnival Parade for the first time, the theme being ‘The Jubilee Year’. We represented the period 1952-1977 in five yearly stages by choosing two ideas or new products for each stage. The Buying Office was very helpful giving us a list of ideas such as washing up liquid for 1952, instant potato for 1967 and low calorie drinks for 1972. Wokingham Partners had fun designing weird and wonderful costumes deplicting the products.
