THE OLYMPIC TORCH COMES TO DOVER AND DEAL

Two years ago I campaigned to get the Olympic Torch to come to Dover and Deal. Today the Olympic Torch came to Dover – tomorrow it goes to Deal.

Arriving on a tall ship, sea legs were needed for the three hour voyage due to the terrible weather. Yet we made it in the end. The crowds turned out in their thousands to join the celebrations. Bearers included Robbie Herbert from Castle Community College (pictured here with me) who was a fantastic representative.

The stage show in the evening was a huge success with over 15,000 attending followed by a spectacular Firework show ending the evening with a bang! It was a great success and will be a day to remember.
