The Paralympic Flame is set to visit all parts of Cambridgeshire this August Bank Holiday. To mark six months to go before the start of the Paralympic Games, The London 2012 Organising Committee has announced the areas across the UK which will hold Flame Celebrations as part of the Paralympic Torch Relay.
A number of sites throughout Cambridgeshire are to receive parts of the flame in a new concept for the Paralympic Torch Relay, where Four Flames will be lit in London, Greater Belfast, Edinburgh and Cardiff and then shared throughout the nation.
These events over the August Bank Holiday weekend will include a special lakeside event in Milton Country Park where music and activities will entertain us as the flame arrives.
The four Flames will then be united at the Paralympic Flame Lighting Ceremony at Stoke Mandeville, the spiritual home of the Paralympic Movement to create the London 2012 Paralympic Flame. This Flame will be carried on a 24 hour overnight Relay to London and the Opening Ceremony of the Paralympic Games.
