Get Involved in Reading's Torch Relay
Commuters in Reading will be met on their way to work this morning - to be encouraged to not only line the local leg of the Olympic Torch Relay - but come up with their own ideas of how to celebrate the event.
Reading Borough Council wants to create a carnival atmosphere in the town centre when the Torch reaches the town in July.
Today, teams of people line the area around Market Square to offer workshops showing you how you can be part of the event.
There'll be workshops for people to learn how to make bunting and a lot of carnival costumes and steel band musicians; demonstrating there are no limits to how the town can celebrate this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
The team will be showcasing other events and projects set to take place in the lead up to and during the 2012 Games, including "Super Saturday" on 4 August and "Capture Reading - A snapshot of the town at a precise moment".
Today's event will also look for "Local Leaders" - a chance for people to get involved and give everyone a lasting memory linked to the Olympics.
The Market Square in Reading will be the focal point of today's information and events (8am - 9am)
