Text in report: "When the Margate It's A Knock Out team arrived in Groningen, Holland on Sunday, they found that the town's market square has been renamed Margate Square. While playing host to Margate, the Dutch town has altered the square's name for the week. Other landmarks in the Dutch town have been given temporary names in honour of other visiting 'knock out' teams taking part in the European television games programmes.

The Margate team, who left Cecil Square on Sunday, compete against teams from six continental countries tomorrow (Wednesday), and the programme will be screened on 28 August."
