ALTHOUGH the Olympic torch is not coming to Bulwell during its two days in Nottingham, local schoolchildren have not missed out on the excitement.
Bulwell schools have had their own Olympic Flag relay this week.
Cantrell Primary School was its first port of call on Tuesday morning and it was taken to Crabtree Primary School the same afternoon.
Snape Wood Primary School, on Aspen Road, received the flag on Wednesday morning and it was handed to Rufford Primary School that afternoon.
The flag went to Bulwell St Mary’s Primary School yesterday (Thursday) morning and reached its final destination when it arrived at Springfield Primary School on Lawton Drive in time for the school sports day.
Each school had its own flag to keep as a souvenir.
Linda Abbott, manager of Bulwell Education Action Zone (EAZ), said: “We wanted the children to feel part of the Olympic relay and we thought having the flag was a good way for them to get involved.”
The relay was organised by Bulwell’s School Sports Partnership.
