Olympic Banners Up for Grabs!

Posted: Tue, 30 Oct 2012 11:40

Local schools, sports clubs and organisations are being given the opportunity to have a part of the Olympic legacy.

The Olympic banners that lined the route of the torch relay have now been taken down, and all schools, sports clubs and public organisations within the district are being encouraged to declare an interest in obtaining one.

Cllr Blake Pain portfolio holder for Health & Well being, said: "During the torch relay, Olympic and Paralympic games, these banners adorned our streets to show our support for the amazing people in our communities and exceptional British Athletes."

"As part of the legacy programme we want to offer these banners to schools and clubs to display in public locations. This will act as an inspiration for them to be the best they can be in whatever they do, and uphold the Olympic values of 'Respect, Excellence, Courage, Determination, Inspiration, Friendship and Equality'."

If you are a school, sports club or organisation that is interested in obtaining one of the banners please contact Jayne Wisely at Harborough District Council, by emailing or telephone 01858 828282.

Please include where you are proposing to display the banner and what your organisation is doing as part of the Olympic legacy.

There are only a limited number of banners available, so those which are proposing the greatest impact will be more successful.

The deadline for applications is Friday 30th of November.
