Thousands Welcome Olympic Torch in Godalming
History was made in Godalming last night as the
Olympic torch received a rapturous reception
from thousands of well-wishers who packed the
route of the iconic symbol as it was carried
through the town by seven chosen torchbearers.
Over 20,000 people lined the route through
Godalming in summer sunshine as the team of
torchbearers led by local resident and double
silver Olympic medal winner Roger Black,
paralysed charity campaigner Daniel Eley as well
as fellow torchbearers Kate Evans, Michael
Evans, Rachel McLean, Megan Munro and Becky
