The Olympic Torch in Gloucestershire

It's an historic year, an historic event - and it was great to be involved!

The Olympic Torch was in Gloucestershire between Wednesday 23rd May and Thursday 24th May, during its 70-day journey across Britain, carried by over 8,000 Torch bearers through over 1,000 communities - cities, towns, villages, up and down the UK.

It's estimated that 95% of the country's population live within one hour of the route taken by the Torch.
