Willington Action Group

Prior to the London 2012 Summer Olympics the Olympic Torch was carried for 8,000 miles around the United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man.

Eight thousand runners were involved in the relay that started on the 10 May and ended on the 27 July.

The runners were selected for their contribution to local communities.

One of the runners, Mrs Karen Cresswell from Hilton, was kind enough to bring her memorial replica torch in to a group meeting and members and helpers posed for photos as reminders of this wonderful event.
