The date the Olympic torch will be carried through Redbridge and the names of those who will carry it have been announced.
Twenty-six lucky people will bear the flame through the borough on July 22, with the procession starting at the Redbridge Cycle Centre in Hainault at 7.19am.
The route will take the torch along Forest Road before sailing across Fairlop Lake on a boat.
From there crowds in Barkingside will be able to watch as it is carried down Cranbrook Road, across Gants Hill and then past the mansion in Valentines Park. It will then proceed through Ilford past the Town Hall before leaving the borough for Barking.
What a success the Mayfayre was today; great weather, excellent turnout and lots of fun!
Our Mayfayre Procession was led through the local community by the Morris Dancers (thanks to other road users giving us free access). We returned to St Margaret’s for the crowning of the May Queen (more photos to follow):
and for the Maypole Dance performed by the children of Christchurch School and Ilford Girl Guides:
Even one of our resident Cantors thoroughly enjoyed himself:
