Not everyone can carry the Olympic torch However marigolds have been chosen as the Olympic symbol of the torch . So that the local community can feel part of and participate in the Olympic torch carrying celebration too,GOVS with the help of sheltered accommodation schemes who have helped grow them , are going to hand out marigolds in orange pots to spectators who will be following the procession so that symbolically, if not in practice,, they too can carry the torch . GOVS would also like to invite local community groups to join us and participate in this community once in a life time event.. Contact Angela Burr on Burr546@btinternet.com for more information.
