Sunday Snap – The West End Street

The West End Street
We were looking at the national football stadium for last week's Sunday Snap. I asked what stadium it was and the answer is


Scoring the winner with the correct answer were Susan, Angela, Michelle, Stephen, Sonia, Erica, Kara, Jen and Cass.

For this week I have a guest photograph from Mr JibberJabber. Whilst I was at Wembley with Father JibberJabber celebrating AFC Wimbledon winning the League Two playoff final Mr JibberJabber took the rest of the crew into central London. The main section of this street is situated between Piccadilly Circus and Oxford Street. It is currently looking at its patriotic best festooned with Union flags. The original name for it was the rather unimaginative New Street. It was renamed in honour of the role King George IV undertook whilst he was still a prince and his father, George III, was incapacitated through mental illness.

Today the road is known for its famous shops, Christmas decorations and and promotional events. It is home to the Café Royal, the first Apple shop in Europe (which at the time was the largest in the world) and until 2005 Dickins and Jones. Master JibberJabber though was only interested in one store and that was the toy shop Hamleys. This week's question is

What street is it?

We were joined last week by Cheryl who was also flying the Union flag with a cake. Jack and Noah were enjoying a staycation on the beautiful Northern Ireland coast. Five rolled down the hill for Mummy vs Daddy. Betty in New Zealand made the most of a early morning. Enjoying the simple things in life were Susan and her daughter. Kelly was on the road to nowhere. Is it a bird, is it a plane? Well you'll have to find out yourself with Robyn's unveiling. Kara found her pair with hands up on the helter skelter and also with their hands on some certificates with Diversity.
