OLYMPIC TORCH COMES TO CHIDEOCK

THE OLYMPIC TORCH arrived in Chideock this afternoon (12th July).  Despite the pouring rain hundreds of people turned out to welcome the Olympic Runners to Chideock!  Children from Symondsbury & Charmouth Schools lined the route waving Union Jacks and having a great time.  Residents and holidaymakers held their umbrellas aloft and ‘cheered’ the convoy and gave huge support to the runners.  Considering the weather it was a great ‘turn out’ and showed the best of the ‘british spirit’!  The refreshments in the marquee did a good trade and many people were glad of a nice hot ‘cup of tea’ and home made cakes.  Many thanks to the Fete Committee who were the main organisers and the other Groups who made this a spectacular if ‘very wet’ event such a huge success.
