The Spirit of the Games...

There's the small shindig happening in London later this month. It's happened a couple of times before. A gathering of sporty types who'll bring their best, enter the arena and fight for the gold in front of a global audience. Dashin' and prancin'...

...the Olympic Games are comin' to town.

And the Olympic flame, that which symbolises the spirit of The Games, has been wending its way to London through rain and shine (but mostly rain) to inspire the people of England.

On Sunday afternoon, a few folk gathered along Hatfield Road in St Albans to eat, drink and wave a flag or two. The vibe on the street was dry (surprisingly enough) and humming with excitement and anticipation...





All of a sudden, the convoy had arrived and with it, the flame...


...and before too long, it was on its way again, safe in the hands of Huddersfield Supply Chain Manager, Glyn Carter.


Just as well we snaffled a sneaky snap while Glyn was waiting his turn...


...to show we were really there!

Only 17 days to go peeps. Are you ready for the Games of the XXX Olympiad?
