Dunstable chosen for London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay Route

Dunstable has been announced as one of the communities that will host the Olympic Flame on its route round the UK.
Residents from across Central Bedfordshire are being invited to welcome the Olympic Flame to Dunstable on 9 July 2012, share in the excitement that the Relay will bring and celebrate the achievements of the Torchbearers selected to carry the Flame.

Dunstable is one of over 1,000 villages, towns and cities announced by the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) through which the Olympic Flame will be carried by Torchbearers during the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay which is presented by Coca-Cola, Lloyds TSB and Samsung. LOCOG has worked closely with representatives from a number of sectors in the East of England to devise the route.

Welcoming the announcement, Leader of Central Bedfordshire Council, Cllr James Jamieson says, "Hosting the Olympic Torch Relay will shine a light on Dunstable and on our area as a whole. I hope that residents of all ages will join us for this historic occasion to share in the Olympic spirit and welcome the Flame to our area as part of the countdown to the start of the Games.
