Paralympic Lantern coming to Stamford Bridge
With the London 2012 Paralympic Games now underway, East Riding of Yorkshire Council is launching the East Riding tour of the Paralympic Lantern at a community event in Stamford Bridge.
At the successful Flame Celebration on Friday 24 August at the Beverley Leisure Complex, the council took possession of a Paralympic Lantern, which is intended to be a lasting symbol of the Paralympic values of courage, determination, inspiration and equality.
Over the next eight weeks, the lantern will be showcased at a number of community events across the East Riding.
These events will provide an opportunity for residents to see the Paralympic Flame locally.
The first event will be on Tuesday 4 September at 8.30am in Stamford Bridge.
The occasion will be the start of the final stage of a sponsored ride for the Stamford Bridge swimming pool repair fund.
The ride is being undertaken by local resident Brian Saynor, 74, who started the 170-mile Way of the Roses ride from Morecombe to Bridlington on Tuesday, this week.
