The Olympic torch has been on a special journey through Braintree. Torchbearer Kate Malyon, 45, of Stubbs Lane, has visited children in various pre-schools and primaries to give them a chance to see the official torch up close. She said: “Having been privileged with the honour of running with the flame, I decided to take the torch to as many schools and children events as possible to allow children to be involved in the whole Olympic experience and give them the chance to see, hold and have their picture taken with the torch.” Read this week's Times for the full story.
