The Olympic Torch Relay – Coming To a Street Near You?

Where Is The Olympic Flame Going?

The planned torch relay will bring the Olympic Flame within 10 miles of 95% of people in the UK. It will enable local communities to shine a light on the best their area has to offer – including celebrations of local culture, breathtaking landscapes and dynamic urban areas. I will be asking my students to come up with some ideas to show off north Devon to the rest of the world!

The image shown here is the torch relay route through my county of Devon. You can use the interactive map found at the link below to discover how close the torch relay will come to your own area. Be sure to give the torch athlete a cheer as they pass by!
