The Phone Book and The Olympic Torch

February 27, 2012

The Phone Book
The runner on the front of The Phone Book for 2012/2013, to be seen outside various houses in Abingdon, is Peter Radford … Sprinter … Bronze Medalist … Rome 1960 Olympic Games.
The Olympic Torch
The Olympic torch will be carried through Abingdon on Tuesday 10th July. The route will not be quite so telegraphic as the map suggests.

Having celebrated the night before in Oxford the torch will come through Abingdon in the early morning before setting off down the A415 towards Wallingford, and after a long day on the road will stop for a celebration event at Reading.

    Excellent – straight past my work!

    Do we know roughly how early in the morning?

    It’s so exciting! I love events like this that we will probably never again get to see. My patriotic spirit is brewing…
