Get involved with Olympic Torch Relay in Cheshire East!


Time is running out for a once in a lifetime opportunity to be involved in this year’s Olympic Torch Relay.

Cheshire East Council has recruited more than 300 volunteers to help with the relay, which passes through the Borough next month ahead of the London 2012 Olympic Games – but more are needed.

The streets of Crewe, Congleton, Macclesfield and Knutsford will be a hive of activity on the morning of Thursday, May 31 and now is the time for people to put their names forward to be a major part of it.

Volunteers to act as stewards are needed and full training and guidance will be given to those who want to take part.

Councillor Rod Menlove, Cabinet member with responsibility for environmental services, said: “What an opportunity this is for Cheshire East residents to get involved with the Olympic Torch Relay.

“This really is a unique chance for people to be a part of the greatest show on earth and to represent their home town in the process. It is also a fantastic opportunity to learn new skills.”

Volunteers will get the chance to learn the following skills:

· How to deal with accidents and emergencies;

· Dealing with spectators and crowd control;

· Customer care;

· Support the work of a team;

· Controlling the movement of people at events;

· Providing emergency first aid and action; and

· Risk assessments.

Anyone aged 16 and over can apply. To register your interest email
