When the Olympic Torch Relay came to Brighton and Hove

Written by Julia Latham on

On Monday 16th July I had the utmost pleasure of watching the Olympic Torch pass through Brighton & Hove, before making it's way up to Sussex County Cricket Ground for an evening of celebrations. Being an avid sports fan, and an excited Olympic ticket-holder, it made sense that I wanted to see the torch in person and feel inspired. I wasn't let down. I got the opportunity so see 87-year old Sylvia Baker who is visually-impaired, carry the torch through the streets of Hove. A fantastic sight to see, with some great memories, I'm glad I didn't miss it.    

Did you see the torch relay? Did you take any photos? Send them to and I'll add them to the blog!
