Wednesday afternoon was a bit of an exciting time in my little corner of middle England because the Olympic Torch was running through our town.
In a rather generous move, my employer gave our entire workforce time off to go and see it! Gathered just metres from our building along the main road through town, we saw the procession of entertainment before and after the torch passed through.

The new torchbearer - Debbie Chessum
She was really good with the kids and had lots of photos taken

The atmosphere was amazing and it was lovely to see so many people out in force in support of the torch and the London 2012 games. Have you seen the torch in your local area?
