The torch will be carried by 8000 torchbearers during it's 10 week relay, each carrying it for approximately a mile. Those selected for each relay will be picked because of a "personal achievement" or contribution to their community.
Suzanne Rutland-Barsby, Chairman of East Herts Council said Saturday 7th July would be an important day for East Herts. She said: "I very much hope residents from the towns and surrounding villages will come and see the Olympic Flame as it passes through the district and witness the spectacle of the Olympic Torch Relay."
"The torchbearers should be cheered every step along the route and we hope organisations and community groups will take up the Local Leader Initiative invitation to hold events along the route."
The Olympic Flame will be carried across the UK by 8,000 inspirational Torchbearers each of whom will have a story of personal achievement and/or contribution to the local community. In December this year, successful nominees will be contacted with a conditional offer and final Torchbearer places will start to be confirmed from February 2012 onwards.
