The Wimbledon Way, SW19’s newest heritage attraction turned gold today with the arrival of a second gold painted post box for the town. Marking the success of Andy Murray as Britian’s first Olympic male tennis champion, the post box is located at the corner of Church Road and Somerset Road, just yards from the Championship grounds.
Diana Sterck, Chief Executive of Merton Chamber of Commerce said “We are not only delighted at the success of our Olympic Champions but also that their achievements have become part of Wimbledon’s heritage. The gold post boxes marking the success of Andy Murray and Sophie Hoskings, are history in the making and fit perfectly with the aspirations of the Wimbledon Way that aims to celebrate and promote Wimbledon’s rich heritage. The Wimbledon Way has also been supported with £45,000 of Heritage Lottery Funding to help Merton’s communities to learn about and take part in Wimbledon’s heritage.”
