The Olympic Torch Relay will give Bearsden the chance to shine, says Jo.
The Olympic Flame will be carried through Bearsden on the 9th June 2012 on its journey across the UK, as announced by the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) today.
Commenting, Jo said:
“It’s fantastic news that the Olympic Torch Relay will be passing through Bearsden on the 9th June 2012. The relay will provide local people with a real opportunity to connect with the spirit of London 2012, while shining a light on the unique community of Bearsden.
“With the inspirational torchbearers soon to be announced, I hope local residents will join together ahead of this proud moment for Bearsden next year and start planning the Olympic flame’s welcome to East Dunbartonshire.”
