Flame will cross the bridge, as part of the London 2012 Torch Relay.


Wellington TF1 3EU Tel 01952 223447


The Flame will cross at 3.14 pm, making its way along the Wharfage before it goes to Telford town centre. Barrie Williams, chair- man, Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust said: “It’s wonderful to be able to wel- come the Flame and see it cross the Iron Bridge. The Gorge has been at the centre of the London 2012 Games since the Museum launched the Cultural Olym- piad in 2008.


Ten thousand flowers have been planted in Hadley and Leegomery Parish to bring the area alive with colour and the smell of summer, plus create sustainable habitats for butterflies and insects including our strug- gling bee population. Planting involved an army of local residents from within the Hadley and Leegomery Parish, as Community Vol- unteers, working alongside Telford and Wrekin Council. Pat Smart, Hadley and Leegomery Parish Council’s Tree and Environment War- den said: “Clearly something more needed to be done and after surveying the area we developed our long-term plan to improve and enrich the environment further, for the benefit of our community by planting trees, shrubs, bulbs and flowers. The funding was approved by the Parish Council, and the flowers for this phase were obtained from British Wild Flowers.”
