Droitwich's Olympic moment...Strewth!
Bill Phillips: i have never seen so many people in Droitwich!
can feel the vibes in this image. very much like in Singapore [Youth Olympic Games in 2010]
Bill Phillips: It was good to see the torch procession...we barely saw the actual torch!
So exciting! I remember when I saw the torch come through Laramie, Wyoming... thrilling!
Bill Phillips: It was good and the weather was warm and sunny too!
I see your glimpse Bill... through the window of the bus... second from the right bottom row... it's nice to see the pride of the people in the crowd... it will be a great Olympic Games in London i am sure....petersmile

BTW... great collage Mategrin
Bill Phillips: Actually two glimpses as the one in use can be seen in the middle second from the left next to the plastic one!

A piece of history indeed: I saw it in Bath
Bill Phillips: I thought i ought to go and see it as it will be a one off
When it comes to Leicester the experience will live to be equal in my memory as the defeating of the Poll Tax back in Thatcher's time. I can't wait.

It's also going to pass very close to where my son lives in Surrey and also where we have a 'bolt hole' down in Suffolk.
Bill Phillips: it passed close by our daughter's in Worcester and they went to see it. I can't get very excited about the games but I enjoyed the torch

Oh, we are in England - this is as clear as day (or 'klar wie Kloßbrühe) -yes, that is an event Spa Droitwich has deserved! A fine, funny collage!
Bill Phillips: It was quite exciting lots of people turned out to cheer it on its way

Where is that picture of Mr.Pig carrying that torch for at least one mile?? Or was Mr.Pig to shy, or maybe training for the 10 meter pole-vaulting.
Absolute delightful collage and I think it is great to be part of it. Like Chris said, a piece of history. The world will look at the UK, not long from now. INCLUDING me, I will be glued to the TV.
Bill Phillips: They wouldn't let Mr Pig be a torch bearer. Blatant discrimination if you ask me. Still his Victorian tour resumes tomorrow. I bet people were hoping it had finished grin

YAY for the Olympic torch that has traveled all over the world for eons, Bill. It's one of the best parts of the Olympics, as far as I'm concerned, and the part that many people who can't see the games will get to see. Good for you.
Bill Phillips: I enjoyed seeing the torch but will be happy to avoid as much of the games as I can

Well done Bill, a fine collage captures the day. Especially like the little chap on his dad's shoulders watching the guy in front taking a photo.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Mike. I normally avoid things like this but I'm glad I went. I can now avoid most of the actual games hopefully
I saw it in Trowbridge and again in Cirencester. it was thrilling in a highly charged atmosphere but there was no crowd trouble and the event passed off peacefully. I am surprised that it made its way through Droiters without being nicked.
Bill Phillips: Well if it can survive Trowbridge it can survive anywhere Chad
Love the girl in red who has hair accessories to match the Union Jack.
Bill Phillips: And she had her own blow up plastic torch

Brilliant - I particularly like the fake plastic one! Olympic fever still hasn't touched me yet I'm afraid.
Bill Phillips: I enjoyed seeing the torch procession...something I would normally avoid. I will be happy to miss most of the actual games
I seem to be in a minority on this subject Bill,looking forward to the games, but can't get excited about the torch, perhaps I will when it comes here,( though I doubt it) smile
Bill Phillips: I enjoyed the torch procession. something I wouldn't normally go to but the games leave me cold
Great pics Bill, I'm sure I'll go along when it arrives in Ealing.............24th July!
Bill Phillips: Worth going Martin. It is a one off

Thanks for this Bill - as far as I can make out I'm going to miss it as I'll be in the north when it's in the south and vice versa.
Excellent montage, Bill. Great memento of the day. Cheers, Dave.
