Tottenham Green has had a New Year make over with the installation of more than 200 solar-powered lanterns made with the help of pupils from local primary schools.
Special jars, which light up at night using solar energy, have been decorated by children from Ferry Lane Primary, Willow Primary School, Holy Trinity CE Primary School and Harris Primary Academy Coleraine Park schools - writes haringey.gov.uk
The colourful lanterns have been suspended between trees on wire ropes to create a large central multi-layered chandelier which will light up Tottenham Green when it is dark. The art project, which will remain in place throughout January, has been led by light installation specialists Creatmosphere.
Cllr Bernice Vanier, Haringey Council Cabinet Member for Culture said:
“This project is a fantastic way to kick off 2018 and will light up Tottenham Green throughout January which is the darkest time of the year. Tottenham Green is the civic heart of the area so it’s great to have so many school-children involved in such a spectacular community art project.”
