Games maker gets set

Pharmacy manager Claire Slater will be swapping her white coat for an Olympic uniform this summer.

Claire, who works at Abbots Pharmacy in the High Street, is one of the team of volunteers at this year’s London 2012 Olympic Games.

Claire has been selected to be a ‘games maker’ in the Events Services team.

“My role will include greeting spectators on arrival at the venue, managing queues, providing directions and information and showing spectators to their seats”
said Claire.

“I’m really excited – it’s a once in a lifetime experience!”

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.
