Olympic Torch Relay
Great fun and festivities as the torch relay passed through Swindon and surrounding villages yesterday. Daughter managed to get this photo of the Chelsea footballer who had the honour of running in Swindon as well as many other noteworthy and local people.
Great to see, I watched much of it via the Internet. See the link here to watch the relay live.
The North Wiltshire countryside looked amazing in the sweltering sunny heat of 28C.
BBC Wiltshire also has some interesting photos, as Zara Phillips carried the torch around Cheltenham race course last night. The local paper Swindon Advertiser also featured lots of photos.. .see here
