Olympic torch relay in Newlyn 2012.

2012 torch relay for London Olympics.

It is amazingly 6 years ago since we watched the Olympic torch relay go through Newlyn West Cornwall. Crowds had gathered by the droves with banners flags and good moods. Celebrations went on along roads with long tables and goodies put together by communities unable to come and see the relay. Goodwill to everyone appeared to be the consensus for the time. Before the runner appeared, many sponsor vehicles came past. To be sure, a huge amount of volunteers and policing was used to keep everything under control. Local walking ‘bobbies’ were not unusual.

The torch set off from Land’s End in Cornwall GB and came through Newlyn where I caught these glimpses.

The man of the moment is a jogger in Olympic logo white suit carrying the burning Olympic torch with a great smile on his face cheered on by the gathered crowds along the route. Tour with Alvajoan and catch the moments.

Today is exactly 6 years and one day since this event. Do You remember it? Did you celebrate?

We provide passenger transport supplying our vehicles and drivers for your comfort and safety. Our roads in Cornwall are not like huge multi-lane motorways but rather narrow. To safely travel in comfort we employ mini-coaches and MPV’s, enabling 1 to 16 passengers at a time. Using these vehicles enables us to provide small groups with our knowledgeable drivers to enhance the day trip, sightseeing or tour to Your delight. Luggage is taken care of in separate secure trailer which is particularly useful for airport transfers and larger tour groups. With flights from the USA now able to arrive at Newquay Airport we expect group visits to increase. Please drop us an email with your wishes if we can be of assistance this side of ‘the pond’, aka the Atlantic.
