David beats Lindfield torchbearers to a torch!

At a recent business training event by Nigel Botteril Lindfield Life editor, David Tingley, got the chance to get his hands on a genuine Olympic Torch!

Not only that, but he held a Olympic Gold Medal, won by a member of the 8+ Rowing team Ben Hunt-Davies (pictured). The Gold was awarded to the British team at the Sydney Olypmics in 2008. This incredible acheivement was the first time a British crew had done this since 1912! 

Back in Lindfield, we are looking forward to cheering on torchbearers from within our community when they do their legs of the journey nearby - Sue Blunden and Mike Scholes - see our July magazine.
