Olympic news from Stratford Upon Avon (NOT Stratford east London)What’s been happening happening near Avonlea B&B
At the beginning of the month the Olympic torch went right past the door of Avonlea. In the centre of town the crowds were out in force and some people were 10 deep trying to get a view. We thought with all the other Bed & Breakfasts on our road it would be hard to get a space too. But fortunately we managed to get a great spot right outside the front of the B&B.
There was a great atmosphere and all of our family who came to visit for the occasion had a really great day. It really made us realise the countdown is on. The next big Olympic event in Stratford Upon Avon is the installation of the big screen in Bancroft Gardens just a 5 min walk from Avonlea. The screen will be up on the 27th of July to celebrate the opening ceremony and they will be a part in Bancroft gardens too. If the weather finally decides to surprise us with “summer” we are looking forward to a great atmosphere.
