We had a brilliant turnout to cheer the torch through town. We found a good spot opposite the old post office where there's an overhang in case of rain (Good thinking Mike), but we didn't need it, or the improvised bin-bag waterproofs. Ken kept spirits up with rousing songs while we waited but it was just fun to soak up the atmosphere. 

The suspense built up with sponsors' vehicles coming through, flag sellers and lots of police motorcyclists until at last the torch came and went with lots of cheers and flag waving. We then came back via the market place and bumped into lots of people we know, including Keith the photographer who took some more pictures.
