Lindfield's Olympic Runners!

Lindfield will be well represented in the Olympic torch relay, with two villagers being given the honour of carrying  the flame.

Sue Blunden and Mike Scholes will be running as part of the 8,000 strong relay team carrying the Olympic Flame as it makes its journey through Sussex.

Lit in Greece, the Olympic Flame arrived in the UK on 18th May 2012 before setting out the next day on a 70-day Olympic Torch Relay, bringing the excitement of the Games to everyone.  Hundreds of torch bearers, ranging from celebrities to community champions, have already taken their place in history by completing a section of the route which runs through more than 1,000 towns, cities and villages.

Sue and Mike will join the relay on 16th July, day 59, and will carry their torches through Westergate and North Bersted. They were chosen from thousands of nominations and both say they are honoured to be taking part.
