First up is Adrian Warner – who is the Olympic Correspondent for the BBC. You see him on the news all the time – kind of got a nice dry appropriately dispassionate BBC delivery.
He is looking for a local family. Are there any 2 or 3 generations of family living in or around Leabank Square to share experiences of all the changes over the years – culminating in the Olympics?
If you would like to know more – please call his researcher (Summer on 07958 319 251)
Then there is the Simon Mayo show on BBC Radio 5. They want to know what locals feel about the massive Tesco Town being built around the corner. They would like 2 Leabankers – one pro – and one against Tesco building this incredibly large and neighbourhood altering development.
If you want to be on this show (Tuesday 20th October) – then please call his researcher (Alice on 0208 6249 504).
We are still a few years away from the actual games – and we can only expect many more of these kind of queries. So if there are any media-savvy residents out there who would like to be on a short-call list – please email me. Thanks!
