Many other cities, towns, villages and places of outstanding natural beauty, sports venues and community hubs will be announced in a second, more detailed route announcement later this year that will confirm the many other places the Olympic Flame will visit each day.
Roger Gale MP said:
We look forward to welcoming the Olympic Torch Relay to the South East and celebrating the London 2012 Games. There are many inspirational stories to tell about people from across North Thanet that make a difference every day in our community. Nominating an individual to carry the Olympic Flame is a unique way to shine a light on their story and recognise their achievements and contributions in a unique way. This is an opportunity to be part of a once in a lifetime event, and I would urge everyone to think about the people, young and old, that we want to see carry the Olympic Flame in 2012 and cast their nomination.”
Olympian Jonathan Edwards said:
Carrying the Olympic Flame is an incredible honour and we are really excited that so many inspirational people will have the opportunity to be part of building the excitement for the Games. This is a great chance to nominate someone special, who has made a difference and who deserves recognition, to take part in this historic event.”
Nominations are open until 29 June via www.london2012.com/olympictorchrelay
