ST MARY'S Church in Harrow on the Hill has been voted to be featured in a celebratory set of 'London Landmark' 2012 Olympics pin badges.

Residents from across the capital participated in a web vote for which building they would like to represent their borough on the brooches.

The poll took place in September and the results were announced in the run up to the 1,000 days to go milestone on Saturday, October 31.

Reverend Tim Gosden, the vicar of St Mary's Church in Church Hill, said: "I think it's wonderful news that the people of Harrow have voted for this church."

St Mary's Church beat off competition from Headstone Manor in Pinner View, Harrow; Harrow School, High Street, Harrow on the Hill; and Harrow Arts Centre, Uxbridge Road, Hatch End.

In Brent, Neasden Temple in Neasden succeeded against the only other shortlisted location, the Grand Union Canal, which runs through the borough.
