Alnwick to swap Potter Magic for Olympic Magic
It is well known with my friends that I am a bit of a sceptic when it comes to some of the wilder predicitions of nationwide economic gain from London 2012. Nevertheless, these two days are the opportunity to get people involved and to put on a really good show for people.
I am really keen that residents get involved in these two days. We are lobbying for additional events over the two days and I hope that we will be able to take the torch out to other parts of the county that are not on the main route of the torch. In particular, I would love to see the torch being brought to Hadrians Wall, which would highlight the appeal of the west of the county as well.
