In a move to cheer up the community a brightly coloured cow now grazes at Cricklewood Station.
Pupils from Claremont Primary School, in Claremont Road, have spent the term painting the fibreglass farmyard animal donated by local business Theme Traders.
Artist Alistair Lambert, who in the past made the sheep on Cricklewood Common, ran a competition amongst pupils attending his art club at the school which was won by Aisha Abdella.
She said: “I am so, so happy! This is great. I am very proud that my painted cow is going to stand outside of Cricklewood Station for all to see!”
Mr Lambert said: “There were lots of winning cows but Aisha’s drawing had a rein of sparkling diamonds. That gave it the edge.
“We hope it will cheer people up, bring a smile and spread a bit of joy.”
Marie Hancock, of Cricklewood Town Team, which commissioned the sculpture, said: “Where the station stands was once on or very near a patch called Cow Green.
“Hopefully Daisy will bring a smile to passengers and passers by.”
