Olympic torch relay: Day 3

Crowds watch at the Olympic Torch passes Crowds greet the torch in Exeter

On the third day of the journey towards the Olympic Park in London, the torch travels from Exeter to Taunton.

When it arrives in Taunton, it will be taken to Somerset County Cricket Club for a special evening celebration.

Olympian Jonathan Edwards and cricketer Marcus Trescothick are among the runners.

Pop star Labrinth, who performed at the evening celebrations in Plymouth and Exeter, will take to the stage again tonight.

Tuesday will see the torch continue from Taunton to Bristol.

And School Report wants your stories, content or photos.

Remember - it doesn't have to be a big blockbuster of a video package. Think BIG and LITTLE. A single photo of the torch or a torchbearer is just as effective.

Here are a few tips on how your school can get involved in the relay.


On August 29, the Paralympic Games will begin with an opening ceremony featuring more than 3,000 people.

Does your school have tickets for any of the events? Are any students at your school going to be involved in the Paralympic Torch Relay? Do you have any special link to a Paralympian competing this year?

The School Report team would love to hear your stories, so get in touch with us in the usual way!
