Gariful Caters for British Embassy Olympic Exhibition
By Ivana Vrselja May 2, 2012 Blog
The British Embassy Olympic Roadshow arrived on Hvar yesterday, the only island on the itinerary, and Mayor Pjerino Bebic hosted an interesting evening at the City Loggia, as Chris Frean and Peter Hopwood gave a fascinating presentation of the plans for the Olympic village and urban regeneration.
In contrast to past Olympics, there has been plenty of thought put into the sustainability of the area after the event, as well as environmental considerations, with several of the main event arenas of a temporary nature, so that they can de dissembled and moved elsewhere for future events.
The British presentation followed a typically lively speech from Mayor Bebic and was followed by a buffet dinner for the assembled guests, which was provided by Gariful. The exhibition will be presented to the schoolchildren of Hvar today, also at the Loggia.
