Before the actual flame goes by there was a procession of cars, floats and performers such as a bmx stunt rider all linked to the sponsors of the Olympics. I'm glad we made the effort to go down and watch it, a real 'once in a lifetime' opportunity.
I'd come straight from work so look rather rough but wanted to wear my London 2012 t.shirt that I had been given for being one of the staff ambassadors at school.
The kids waited patiently waving their flags - Stella is also an Olympic ambassador at her school.
There she goes.....the flame goes past.
