The torch continues to generate large crowds and interest on its run across the UK. Speaking to several members of the public lately they were all surprised at the numbers when they got to their local areas. Looking at evening events across London they have ‘sold out’ very quickly which shows the anticipated interest already.
Remember, its arrives in London next Friday evening at the Tower of London before the full London leg which starts in Greenwich on 21st July.
The main guidance, repeated again is the think ahead of how you will manage your staff and business on the day the relay hits town. Crowds come out early and some bus routes etc will be delayed due to the movement of the Torch convoy.
URGENT update – demonstration
Notification has just been received that some London cab drivers intend to hold a demonstration in the Whitehall area between 2pm and 4pm next Tuesday 17th July 2012. Although detail is scarce at present it will be a moving convoy up and down Whitehall between these times.
