Olympic Torch Relay 2012



Posted: June 21st, 2012

My Rotary Club, The Rotary Club of Carlisle Castle, were asked to get involved in the Olympic Torch Relay and last night we helped out by marshalling when the torch reached Carlisle.

I was lucky enough to be at one of the ‘kissing points’ where 2 torch runners meet and the flame gets passed from one runner to the next.

It was a fantastic night and the atmosphere was amazing, with lots of support for the torch bearers both from local people and community groups, some of whom had travelled quite a distance.  An event that I’m sure many of us will only see once in our lifetime!
