The morning shift London Ambassadors in full swing!
Walking (usually in pairs) up and down the South Bank so we are visible to help assist Jubilee visitors and Londoners
These maps either side of the Pod were very popular with both visitors and Londoners alike. Many liked the fact you got an ariel view of Central London and used it to plan their sightseeing routes that day, their work routes in anticipation of The Games or just have a chat about their knowledge of London.
The newly revamped Jubilee Gardens is looking fantastic!
I arrive for my London Ambassador shift on Saturday 2nd June a little early, to absorb the Diamond Jubilee atmosphere along the South Bank. There are still some parts of Jubilee Gardens fenced off, the turf is that freshly laid!
But many Londoners and visitors are taking advantage of dry and slightly warmer weather, to just relax in the unveiled space that has been under wraps for many months now.
Folks started to camp out early Saturday 2nd June for The Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant the next day!
I was fortunate to be one of the London Ambassadors chosen to test ambassador’ at the South Bank over the Diamond Jubilee 2nd – 4th June.
London Ambassadors had 4 test pods: a concertina pod at Marylebone Station, a kiosk pod at Green Park, a mobile pod at Richmond Park and our experience pod at South Bank.
I’ll be posting a few one-off photographs now. But will include the majority of the Diamond Jubilee photos in the general storyline when I write it up in a few months
More on the Diamond Jubilee and the festivities in London. There are many exhibitions still on to see throughout the summer!
I was very pleased to receive my London Ambassador uniform for the Summer via courier the other day!
It looks a lot nicer in reality than the photos we first saw at Module One Training. As a fellow London Ambassador said on our LA Facebook Group “Attention has been paid to the detail.”
Modelling the London Ambassador Waterproof on is photostream is Chris Lyes. Lets hope we wont actually need it!
