M Procter Opticians have teamed up with Harrogate Ladies College to prepare their window for the 19th June, when the Olympic Torch will be carried past their shop on Parliament Street on its journey through Harrogate.
Procters are well known for their window displays which have included motorbikes and revolving pyramids of champagne glasses.
Mike Procter comments:
we were delighted to be asked by the Ladies College to display three papier mache life-sized models of Olympic athletes made by Year 8 students. Like many schools, the College has integrated an Olympic theme into several parts of its curriculum over the Spring Term.
Some of the students involved in the project came to the practice to help create our June window display, which also features Oakley sports eyewear.
Oakley have created an British Olympic range, which are available from Procters if, like our Olympians, you’re quick!
