Olympic Torch Relay - Hemel Hempstead

Release Date: 1 March 2012

Our neighbouring authority, Dacorum Borough Council, is inviting Watford residents to join in the Olympic Torch Relay, which will pass through Hemel Hempstead on its journey - afternoon of Sunday 8 July.

Over 1000 host locations were selected so that 95% of the UK’s population is within ten miles of the flame. The flame coming to the area is a chance for communities to share in the Olympic spirit and mark the countdown to the London 2012 Games.
