2012 – The Olympic Torch Relay and unveiling of the Village Sign

By the time you read this the 3rd of July will be long gone but we hope that it is not forgotten! I am sure you will all agree that The Olympic Torch Relay day was a fantastic day highlighted by the unveiling of our new village sign. People turned out in force and the streets were lined with people, not forgetting the Wymeswold School children, to welcome the torchbearers to Wymeswold. Thank you to Cllr Shaw and the village sign committee for helping to make this a memorable day for Wymeswold. We are also very grateful to Susan Crinage for the artwork of the sign and for managing to incorporate so many of the aspects of the village which make Wymeswold unique.
