A whole load of ‘Olympic Torch Kissing’

This blog post is long over due but I feel it is still very relevant, on the 26th and 27th June the Olympic torch relay made its way through Cleethorpes and Grimsby.

It was such an exciting time for everyone locally to be able to watch such a historical moment. I personally found it exciting as 8 fellow club members from my running club Cleethorpe Athletics had been chosen to torch bear.

On Friday 29th June Clee AC organised a special treat for all club members to get a chance to have a photograph taken on Cleethorpes beach with the 8 Clee AC torch bearers and their torches. It was excellent fun as the below pictures demonstrate.

My love for the Olympic torch kissing spilled out into the school Olympic events that same week!

School Olympic torch kissing!

This week the brilliant Olympic special of Absolutely Fabulous was aired on BBC1  the picture shown below with my friend Leona & I torch kissing reminded me so much of classic picture of Eddie and Patsy. (made me chuckle)
