The torch comes to Penrith

The crowds started to pile into Penrith at about 3-30pm, at which point the Olympic torch was still a long way from Penrith. but eventually 5 o-clock arrived and the torch bearer came into view in our part of the town to hand the flame over to this little girl.

unfortunately at the shutter went off her arm came up and covered her face.

These guys got in on the act helping to whip the crowd up and throwing a few  freebies to the crowd.
turning the gas on

transferring the flame

and one very happy little girl was on her way.

It left Penrith and headed off to Carlisle
