Ana Castro, a trader from the Shopping Centre and her daughter Hellen

“Wonderful memories are brought to me by the Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre, where my mommy has her boutique. Since my mum was pregnant, she tells me that her clients and friends were very happy that I came to bless our home and now it is very nice that they see me and tell me that I have known you since you were in your mommy’s tummy.

Also, I will always remember coming every Sunday to the bingo, my mom took me there to play the children games machines, then go to eat Colombian empanada at La Bodeguita, then go to Tesco shopping, I also could not miss going to the market to see the different businesses that had and crave for something, I can not forget Christmas. It is the most beautiful time for me. All the lights and joy that this gave me and the Christmas trails through the shops. Even more beautiful that I could share with my new sister Ana Victoria, we played, laughed and enjoyed in the shopping, I hope we can return soon when it is bigger and magical to continue enjoying this fantastic place I enjoyed and I hope to continue doing it with much love!”
