Flaming brilliant

IT is exciting to read about the early plans for the Olympic Torch relay’s visit to Alnwick next year.

The Pastures seems like a good choice as the venue for the publicity caravan, but with a year to plan for the event let’s try to ensure that the whole town can participate and enjoy the economic benefits of such an iconic event coming to Alnwick.

Perhaps our town council can open up the plans to others in the community who have ideas and energy to contribute.
