Olympic Torch comes to Almondsbury

 maggie 1 maggie2There was great excitement as Margaret Glastonbury, runner 001 of the Bristol leg of the Olympic torch relay, came to school with her torch.

What a wonderful experience and one the children will not forget. Many of them had been to see the torch relay that morning along the streets of Bristol.
