As many of you have seen I was a proud Olympic Torch Bearer on Friday June 29th in Buxton

Selected for my other hat – Live music events which helped take 400 teenagers off the streets every month locally in Sale – 25,000 people came out to watch the Torch Relay in Buxton.

Truly the most amazing experience of my life I hope the pictures do the moment justice but as local Altrincham tweeters @ouraltrincham @markwinstanley and @altrinchamgirl will tell you – you had to be there!!

An Altrincham resident of 34 years this was my moment to shine so here is a small selection of photos from my journey
