Olympic Torch Coming to Brighton & Hove!

I am absolutely delighted about the news released this morning that the Olympic Torch will be coming to Brighton & Hove on July 16th next year. This was something which we negotiated several months ago and I was strictly forbidden from mentioning anything about it! I would certainly count it as one of the proudest achievements of the outgoing Conservative Administration and my time as Leader of the Council.

We expect there to be a huge seafront party which will hopefully be a massive boost to local businesses and it will also be a fantastic opportunity to show the City off on the national stage. The games themselves are rapidly approaching now and this news just adds to the building sense of excitement across the country!

The Organising Committee of the Games are also launching a campaign today to find the most inspirational people to carry the flame on its way. If you know anyone locally who you think might qualify for this then please do have a look on the Games website – www.london2012.com/olympictorchrelay
