‘Olympic torch’ completes final leg of town relay

BOSTON’S first foray into the Olympic spirit has now come to an end, after a special torch relay finished its journey last week.

Healthy walking groups across the borough took it in turns to carry the specially-made torch and pass it on to fellow walkers at designated meeting points.

The relay began at the end of August with the Swineshead walking group and travelled 35 miles with 160 people to end with the Old Leake group on September 9.
