London to stage 2016 Euros

"No Ball Games," which shows two stenciled children with their hands lifted toward the floating title, first appeared in 2009 on a the wall of a Tottenham neighborhood convenience store. Residents became concerned last week when scaffolding went up around the mural, http://trulaalr.skyrock.com/3172711783-Set-Realistic-But-Enthusiastic-Goals-That-Both-Your-Organization-And.html which is among Banksy's better known works. The piece has popped up on the website of the Sincura Group, the London-based concierge service that sold "Slave Labour on behalf of the owners of the Poundland discount shop that it adorned. The sellers of "No Ball Games," which Sincura declined to name, seem to have charity in mind.

This temple of commerce, with its international retail chains and Brazilian barbecue, is meant to embody the new Stratford, even if its surroundings still resemble a construction site in a soulless urban desert. But most of the area's population lives on the other side of the major railway junction, in old Stratford, which is a different world. At the foot of the railway bridge is the far less glamorous, brown-bricked, Stratford Centre, where Norman Williams sells socks and??2 T-shirts. "Westfield brought more people, and it didn't really harm this centre," he explained to AFP. "There are not so many quality shops but local people are mainly poor people who don't need Westfield shops all the time." Born in Stratford, Williams said he was "mainly go here now positive" about the efforts of Games organisers, despite initial doubts. Many in Stratford are also grateful to the Games for "putting them on the map," he added.

London Games: 9bn bill was money well spent, says public

It got me into sport'. That is what legacy is about." Local facilities: Nearly a third of people said the Olympics had a positive impact on sports facilities but the majority said there had been no impact at all. Only one in five people reported an additional benefit to public services. Tim Lamb, chief executive of the Sport and Recreation Alliance, which represents sports bodies in the UK, said it http://yourtrainings.com/gregorylmvl/trainings/677672/ was important to "keep the momentum going". He added: "We're going to have to find a way of investing in facilities in our sports clubs, making sure that when facilities are hired for sporting activity they are affordable." Economy: Only 22 per cent of people said the Games had improved their local economy. Nevertheless, 69 per cent of people believed the money spent on the Games was worth it, with a higher percentage among those in the south-east, where most of the Olympic events took place. Recent government research claims the UK economy received a 9.9bn boost in trade and investment from staging the Games.
