It was a fabulous day on Monday when the people of Braunton welcomed the Olympic Torch through the village.

The weather was fantastic and crowds lined the streets in excited expectation.  Several others waved flags from open windows and cheered as the torches 'kissed' just a stones throw from our office, which we have to say, we believe was the best decorated building in the village!

What a privilege to be part of such a famous, once in a life-time event.
