A fantastic turnout from Hinderwell

I was fortunate to be nominated and selected to carry the Olympic Torch through Hinderwell on Monday 18th June 2012 and I would like to thank the people of Hinderwell for the fantastic turn out to support the Torch Bearers on this epic occasion.

Every house had flags and bunting on display and lined the High Street in their hundreds, they really entered into the spirit of the Olympics, warm, friendly people.

They made a very special occasion for me an extra special occasion.

It was an experience of a lifetime for me and a day I will never forget.

The welcome I received from this lovely village was indeed brilliant.
