As I have blogged before, the Olympic Torch comes to Blyth on Friday.
The route is basically down Cowpen Road, along Renwick Road to the Sports Centre (where there is to be a lunch break) , and then back towards Broadway, along Broadway Circle and Rotary Way, from where the torch will go on to North Tyneside.
Many schools will be attending, and have been allocated places at the roadside, and various organisations are going to "bus" (literally and figuratively ) people into Blyth for the day.
Exact timings for the day can be found on the torch website.
There will unfortunately be some disruption while the rolling road block stops traffic, but everyone is keeping it to a minimum . If things go wrong, perhaps they might learn from their mistakes for next time !
I have been invited to go to the Sports Centre for a buffet lunch, but have declined the invitation. I have arranged to watch the run with some friends (and constituents ) ... and no doubt drink will be taken !!
