We’re in – putting Haringey on the map
The spirit of Haringey as one of London’s great boroughs is celebrated today (21 September) following the unveiling of a new identity.
Haringey Council’s new brand identity aims to capture the spirit of the borough as a place that oozes passion, creativity, authenticity and charm.
An “I’m In” campaign is challenging residents and businesses to stand up for Haringey – and shout what they love about the borough.
“I’m in because residents have told us that to live and work in Haringey is to be part of something great and we need an identity that reflects that,” said Cllr Joe Goldberg, Cabinet Member for Economic Development and Social Inclusion.
“We need an identity that is optimistic and ambitious for the future, that reflects our promise and potential rather than the past. Haringey is one of London’s great boroughs, a fantastic place to live and work and it’s time we started shouting about this.
“Where else can you watch Florence and the Machine on a Friday night at Ally Pally after eating the world’s cuisine on Green Lanes? Where else can you revel in the hustle and bustle of the newly opened Tottenham Market before watching London’s best football at Spurs? Where else can you stroll through ancient woods in Highgate to end up at some of London’s best pubs in Crouch End, Hornsey and Muswell Hill?”
Haringey’s new identity was formed by drawing on the strengths of the borough as identified by residents, businesses and council staff. Red and black is used as the colours of London, depicting the major role Haringey has to play in the capital – a role that is being strengthened further with more than £1 billion of investment pouring in.
The investment is attracting new creative industries to the borough, such as Wilde’s Cheese, Redemption Brewery, Mill Co, and the Fashion Technology Academy, which will see nearly 3,000 people given the opportunity to earn NVQ qualifications.
Haringey Council Leader, Cllr Claire Kober, said: “Through our new identity, we are celebrating what makes Haringey great – our communities, our neighbourhoods, our schools, our businesses, our heritage. We are incredibly proud of Haringey and that drives us to make it even better.”
