Remaining Olympics banners to be handed to 90 Barnet schools

Olympics and Paralympics banners that adorned the lampposts of Barnet over the summer will be donated to 90 schools across the borough.

Barnet Council will give one each to those schools that requested them and are looking to hand out the rest to charities and sports groups.

The banners were bought by the authority for nearly £40,000 with money donated by the Mayor of London and were displayed during the summer to advertise the games.

Since then, the council has been looking to find a home for the memorabilia and received 55 emails of suggestion from members of the public.

The council handed Oakleigh School in Whetstone their own banners last week before choosing to give the rest away to those that applied.

Charities and sports clubs looking to apply for the remaining banners can email the council at barnet.first@barnet.gov.uk
