Olympic Torch to Come to Reading in 2012

The Olympic committee today announced the fantastic news that some of us have been bursting to tell for some time, that Reading has been selected as one of the towns and cities across the UK which will be on the Olympic torch route next year in the run up to the start of the 2012 Olympic Games. The torch will be paraded through Reading on 10 July next year.

I know that Cllr Andrew Cumpsty has been lobbying hard to get the torch to come to Reading and that we were one of the first authorities to get our bid in. This is another example of the Conservative/Lib Dem administration promoting Reading on the national stage and ensuring that Reading people feel part of the World’s biggest sporting event.
