Shere - The London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay - Day 63
The Flame travels from Maidstone to Guildford before arriving in London with the help of the Royal Navy’s Commando Helicopter Force (CHF).
This thrilling and historic day will give local people and visitors the chance to share the Olympic spirit,
The Olympic Torch procession will now commence in Gomshall Lane at Shere Surgery not opposite the Village Hall as previously advised.
