Ready to run in Harrow (photo: LOCOG)

Harrow’s logo pin features St. Mary’s on the Hill, the Borough and Parish Church at Harrow on the Hill which is said to have once been a favourite haunt of Romantic poet Lord Byron.

The image was chosen by Londoners who last September were offered the chance by LOCOG and London Councils to vote for ‘the most iconic landmark in their borough’.

Each of the landmarks has now been re-created into a metal pin badge incorporating the London 2012 logo.

Sebastian Coe, Chair of LOCOG, said today on unveiling the designs that they were a ‘fantastic way to showcase to the UK and the rest of the world what a wonderful city London is’.

He added: “London is a fantastically diverse city and the variety of landmarks chosen by Londoners to represent their local areas highlights this perfectly.

The badges will be sold around London. See what features on other badges here

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, will be travelling north bound this evening for a ‘People’s Question Time’ at Harrow School. 

He will be joined by Navin Shah, Brent and Harrow’s London Assembly Member (and incidentally, the man who took over from Harrow East Tory candidate Bob Blackman) and Dareen Johnson, Chair of the London Assembly.

Tickets are sold out, but you can watch the whole shebang on your computer here.

The panel will be discussing topics including policing, the environment at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

Also up for discussion will be transport. Perhaps Johnson will have tried using the Metropolitan line to get to Harrow this week.

If so, I’d imagine the audience will be waiting some time for him to appear; there have been severe delays on the line the last few days due to works between Aldgate and Moorgate.
