    Default Olympic Torch :D

    So the Olympic tourch is currently making its way around the UK before it reaches the stadium to begin the games on the 27th July.
    Well this morning it came through our local town center and Chris and Connor went to see what was going on.
    Heres a few pics I thought I'd share with those that are interested xx

    Local Bobby's escorting the runners and sponsors.

    How cool is that?! I must tell you, I have never heard the term Bobbys before. Is that the police?

    Yes...Its an old one!! They were called Beat Bobbys...or Bobbys on the Beat...in Victorian times. One of the many words used to call the police and one that they actually like

    Great pics as always! How neat that must have been for Conner too. I still remember when I was 10 and they came thru our town, my mom took us kids to watch. Something he will remember forever.

    Amongst others there was Sir Bobby Charlton who carried it a short distance.

    If you go to the London 2012 website and click torch relay...you can navigate through and search all the torch bearers for different areas and when it will be there
