Having missed the Olympic Torch relay when it came through on Chichester on Monday I finally caught up with it in Guildford this evening. Friary Guildford Brass Band [friaryguildfordband.co.uk] were playing beside the route, entertaining the public as they waited, so I took lots of photos of them. It was also a great spot for people watching and it occurred to me that only in England would you ever see a man wearing Union Jack deely-bobbers! I managed to wriggle into a front row position for the torch relay itself but sadly there were so many people trying to do the same thing that I couldn??t get a clean shot as it came past. However, I did manage to get a shot of Kevin and our friend Emma with their inflatable torches and I think they make a very good substitute for the real thing!
