Man and Van Wandsworth talks about the Olympic Pin
We at Man and Van Wandsworth have our own thoughts on the borough’s contribution to the pins, which are set to become valuable collector’s items, although we’d better get cracking, as voting closes at midnight on the 18th October.
Man and Van Wandsworth is getting excited. As the Olympics draw ever nearer, Wandsworth residents are being encouraged to vote for the landmark that they’d most like to see representing the borough on their Olympic pin, which will be released as part of a set, along with one for each of the 33 other London areas, to commemorate the 2012 games. The favourite sites which have made it to the short list include Wandsworth Bridge, Battersea power station, and the Buddhist Peace Pagoda which makes for a beautiful centre piece in Battersea Park.
The idea behind the pins comes as part of the Landmark London scheme, in partnership with each of the local councils, encouraging locals to go and explore their local areas, and take advantage of the beautiful things to see and do. Lucky for us as at Man and Van Wandsworth, we have ample opportunity to soak up the sites of the city as we drive through many of the different areas on our way to and from removal jobs.
Let us know your thoughts and which iconic image you would be proud to have representing your borough!
