Oh My God! All of a sudden Olympic-tasticness has hit the office..!! eCards.co.uk is based in a sleepy little town in North Devon called Bideford which very little happens, and then yesterday the Olympic torch came through. What a fantastic thing it is going to be. In all honesty we were all a bit non plussed by the whole Olympic thing but then yesterday it became real to all of us.
Most children in the area were given the morning off school and the streets, windows and balconies were jam packed with people waving flags smiling and cheering the torch along the street. The sun was shining, the bunting was out and it was a great day to be British. Even the coppers were smiling and waving to the crowds. If the UK doesn’t win that many Gold medals I don’t think it really matters, the whole country is going to be rejuvenated with a great feel good factor.
Here are a great selection of pictures:
