Torch bearer Margaret receives fantastic welcome in Bartestree
8:20am Thursday 7th June 2012 in Letters
Such a welcome I WAS one of the Olympic Torch carriers on May 24 in Bartestree.
I would like to express my sincere thanks to the general public who gave me such a fantastic welcome. Carrying the torch was an honour and privilege on this historic occasion which never in my wildest dreams did I think would happen to me.
I felt so emotional that so many people gave up their time to cheer us Olympic Torch carriers on.
MARGARET YOUNG, Longlevens, Gloucester.
