As you may recall we’ve been corresponding with the Torch route organisers and Wiltshire Council about whether the torch could visit Avebury or stop for 30 seconds at Silbury. The organisers say it’s up to the Council but the Council hasn’t responded to us.

Which is strange, as Wiltshire Lib Dems report that
“The council thinks the visits of the torch will create a scrum of international media attention for the settlements on the route.”

Whereas the Leader of the Council Jane Scott has been reported as saying:
“We are encouraging as many communities as possible to get involved in the celebrations and line the torch route on this once in a lifetime opportunity”.

We’ve written to her again, requesting a reply. Watch this space….
