Olympic Torch Goes Through Helston
News released this morning by the London Olympic Committee on the route the torch will take as it travels through Cornwall. The route goes though 20 towns and villages in Cornwall. The route is as follows:
This will take place on Saturday 19th May 2012 and will start at Lands End. It will then travel through Sennen, Newlyn, Penzance, Marazion, Rosudgeon, Ashton, Breage, Helston, Falmouth, Truro, Newquay, St. Stephen, St Austell, Stenalees, Bugle, Lanivet, Bodmin, Liskeard and Bodmin before it crosses the boarder into Devon.
Views are still mixed on spending £130k on a one day event, as are the billions spent on hosting the Olympics. For me, it is just disappointing that the torch will not take a right turn at ‘Stop Gate’ and come through Porthleven.
