What a fabulous morning we have had today. We walked into town at 7.30am ready to see the torch go past at 8am. Firstly there was a parade of sponsor vehicles then our very patriotic town crier walked past (walking the wrong way but no-one told him!):
then the first torch came past:
This is Melanie Easter running past. One of the joys of living in a small town meant that the torch did a circuit around the town centre and then back out the same way (although on a different street), so we quickly ran across the street and round the corner to get another glimpse. Here the children got a chance to do a high five with the police:
and then the second torch came past with a different carrier:
This is Paul Tergat. We then wandered back into town to find some breakfast (had a bacon butty whilst sitting on a bench as town was quite busy!) and I took a nice picture of my boys by the BBC van:
all in all a rather fun morning!
