Olympic fever grips Alnwick

AN interactive roadshow is in Alnwick today, bringing the excitement of the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay to the town.

The Lloyds TSB London 2012 Olympic Torch Tour is in the market place until 4pm, as part of its tour of the UK this summer.

Visitors can have their photo taken with the prototype London 2012 Olympic Torch, learn about the history of the Relay, and how people can nominate someone who has made a difference in the community to carry the Olympic Flame in the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay, which stops in Alnwick on June 14 next year.

The London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay will be a 70-day celebration, starting in May 2012, travelling thousands of miles and bringing the London 2012 Games to hundreds of communities across the UK.
