The Olympic Torch Comes to Sandwich & Thanet!
With the world watching, this Thursday, 19th July, the Olympic Torch will be passed through South Thanet. Join me and support our Torch Carriers, come rain or shine, as they travel round the Thanet Coastline. From its arrival in Sandwich at 9am, it will be carried past our homes until its departure from Margate at 1pm.
As Olympic Fever reaches its peak and in the final days before the greatest show on earth begins, this is an historic day for all of us who live here. Don’t miss out!
