Olympic Torch Excitement

On Monday the Olympic Torch reached day 52 of its travels around the uk and visited our little village.  There was much excitement as all the residents lined the streets with flags and whistles, children had their face painted and the local pubs got involved with bouncy castles, BBQs and music to keep us going whilst we waiting.  There was a wonderful atmosphere as the village came together to cheer on the torch bearer and to see the handover of the torch to the next runner.  Here at Dylan and Grace we’re very much full of Olympic spirit, so check back soon for some fun and sporty ideas for the your Olympic launch party!  In the meantime, here are some interesting facts about the torch.

  •  8000 circles perforate the torch design representing each of the 8000 torch bearers
  • The triangular shape of the torch symbolises a series of “three’s” the Olympic values of respect, excellence and friendship; the three words that make up the Olympic motto – faster, higher, stronger and the UK hosting the Olympics for the 3rd time.
