Norfolk Island becomes first nation to hoist flag at Village

Making its presence felt, the 33-member delegation, which is a part of Commonwealth of Australia, clapped and swayed to the tunes of bhangra and fusion music played by the students of a city school in their honour.

"It (experience) has been wonderful. It has been fantastic. People were nice and friendly," Kevin Watson, an official with the delegation, said.

Asked about the state of affairs at the residential area of the Village, Watson, who is staying in Tower 10 said, "It is nice and clean. Dining area is great. Food is wonderful."
The delegation, comprising 22 athletes, had moved into the Village on Sunday. The members were today out strolling in the hot sun to get a feel of the entire 63.5-hector area of the campus.

Games mascot 'Shera' too was ever obliging as delegates stood besides him to get their pictures clicked.

Like Norfolk Island, every Commonwealth country staying at the Village will hoist its flags marking their presence.
