The Olympic flame is on its way

Excitement is mounting in South West Surrey as we prepare to welcome the Olympic flame in Godalming later today. This will be the final leg of its journey before it reaches London and spends the next week touring round the host city of the 2012 Olympic Games. I am thrilled that our area will be part of this historic relay and it will be a wonderful moment for everyone as the torch makes its way through the centre of Godalming. I know that there are many events planned in the town today to celebrate this historic occasion and I look forward to taking in the atmosphere later on and cheering on our local torchbearers. See you there!
