OlympicTorch at Rugby

July 2nd 2012 saw the Olympic Torch Relay arrive in Rugby.

The convoy of vehicles arrived at about 8.30 to begin its journey through the town. People were out en masse to witness the event which most saw as a once in a lifetime opportunity.

It was nice to see so may people young and old enjoying what was a great moment and everyone smiling. There was a real buzz and sense of anticipation around the crowds and the relay is something that won't be forgotten.
