Dismore calls on City Hall to be lit in Blue to celebrate 200 years of Greek Independence
Labour London Assembly Member for Barnet and Camden Andrew Dismore has written to the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan calling for City Hall to be lit up in blue to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Greek Independence from the Ottoman Empire in 1821.
Mr Dismore said:
‘As many will know I am a passionate Grecophile, so I am especially pleased to be able to write to Sadiq Khan and ask him to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Greek independence. One of the pleasures of representing Barnet and Camden is the large Greek community, and all the food and culture that comes with it. I visit Greece every year, and have visited over 50 islands. As I am retiring on 6th May, I am pleased to be able to do one last civic function for the Greek community.’
