The Olympic Torch in Bristol and Bath

blog 23


It’s not often you get a truly unique community experience and this morning we had that in Bristol.  Over the past few days the Olympic torch has travelled up through the West country, through Bath and into Bristol and arrived last night in the heart of the city.  The city came out to party around the harbourside.  Then today it set off crossing the Clifton Suspension Bridge and across the city again where I went to see it.

It’s always great to see some of the images of Bristol at its best  with the sun shining and all the boats out on the harbour which we saw last night.  I was one of the lucky people who had the torch pass near my house this morning.  Walking to see it was as much of an experience as seeing the torch itself. It seemed all people of all ages came out to enjoy the Olympic Torch in Bristol and Bath.  A fantastic experience which makes me proud to be British!
