OVER £80,000 has so far been spent in the rebranding of Greenwich as a royal borough.
The figures were revealed last night in a written answer at the full meeting of Greenwich Council.
New borough boundary signs cost £21,800, although the council says the previous signs were "dilapidated" and their replacement was delayed until the new royal borough status was bestowed to make the change "as cost effective as possible."
Royal borough banners on lampposts in the town centres cost £41,400 to install and £19,000 has been spent on replacing street signs in selected areas.
The three nights of fireworks that took place to mark the occasion cost £32,500 to stage, although an undisclosed amount was contributed towards this by sponsors.
Freedom of the Royal Borough
Councillors have agreed to hold special meetings later this month where the Freedom of the Borough will be awarded to Neville Lawrence OBE and Doreen Lawrence OBE, parents of the murdered teenager Stephen Lawrence.
The honour will also be given to the Duke of Edinburgh, who is also Baron Greenwich, Judy Smith MBE, George Reynolds OBE and Father Michael Scanlon.
Previous recipients who were given the award by the London Borough of Greenwich will be invited to accept the re-affirmation of their Freedom of the Royal Borough of Greenwich.
This video to mark the celebrations was published by the council.
