East Vs West London Whose Side Are You On?

This post is sponsored by Westfield

Olympic Opening Ceremony? Were you there?

Even though I profess to loving all parts of London, the Olympics has brought home  just how much East London is dear to my heart. The East maybe slightly grimy, a little rough around the edges but with Stratford hosting the Olympics, people from around the world are seeing why East London is vibrant, edgy and cool. Of course having grown up here I may be a little biased :). With the Olympics in full swing it is in the spirit of competition that Westfield London and Westfield Stratford City  go head to head.

What do you think?

Westfield in London is giving everyone their own ‘I was there’ story which will live on as part of the legacy of London 2012. From the landmarks to the people, East and West London each have their own unique energy and flair which make up London. This summer, a competition between ‘Team East’ and ‘Team West’ will generate a healthy rivalry between the two sides of London while showcasing the best of the city.

Westfield London and Westfield Stratford City are going head to head in a battle of East vs West. Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, show your allegiance and share your story by signing up to Team East or Team West.

By signing up you become part of a team which represents your side of London. Your pictures, tweets, videos tagged #IWASTHERE become part of a hub of content representing East or West London. This is your chance to show why your side is the BEST!

Westfield is offering some great prizes for participating and sharing your content: More than £25,000 worth of Visa prepaid cards to spend at Westfield is up for grabs as well as London 2012 and Team GB merchandise.

Sign up  and start racking up those points and who knows you may even come home with gold!
