London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay

Earlier today Pete Pinnington was hosting and entertaining the thousands who came to witness the Olympic Torch Relay arrive in Warrington!

Schools from across the borough gathered at Orford Jubilee Park which was officially opened by the Queen & Prince Philip only last week.

Before the Olympic Torch arrived, there was a whole host of entertainment with performances by the Cheshire Chord Company, Warrington Samba Band (Sir Thomas Boteler & Penketh High), Singers Tricia McTeague (X-Factor), Amy O’Neil, A Me B & Laura Harrison. We were also treated to a fantastic celebration performance by a number of students from schools across Warrington including Penketh High. The performance was the final celebration activity relating to the Malaga Comenius Regio Project – funded by the British Council with a huge Olympic theme.
