Line the streets

The Olympic torch is on it’s way.

It arrives in Newcastle this evening and sets off for County Durham tomorrow morning from Gateshead.

The torch is due to arrive in Shotley Bridge just after 4pm on Saturday 16th June.

The Shotley Bridge Business and Community Partnership has decorated the village centre with bunting, and if you come down during the afternoon [from 1pm] the Partnership are handing out flags to wave and presenting chocolate medals to primary school children dressed in red/white/blue. As there are limited supplies come early!  There is also face painting at Sarah Thew Photography.

Families can take part in a Treasure Trail around local businesses, with the chance of winning ‘day out’ passes to local attractions.  To obtain the flags and medals and to take part in the Treasure Trail you will need to go to Butler & Gee Accountants.

If you would rather stay at home you can watch the Olympic Torch Relay live on the BBC website.
