Today is a historic day for Chester, as we welcome the Olympic Torch to the North West!

The torch will pass over the border from Wales into Saltney at 5:45PM, beginning an evening of celebrations that will culminate in a spectacular show at the Chester Racecourse.

Along the way, the torch will be passing by local landmarks such as the Chester Guildhall, Chester Market, Chester Cathedral and the Handbridge shops.

We at Maxiflow will be cheering on the torch alongside the residents of this remarkable city, celebrating the spirit of community for which this symbol stands.

We would like to wish the very best of luck to the 15 individuals participating in the relay through Chester: Helen Allen, Huw Barrett, Donna Butler, Adrian Derbyshire, Lucy Derbyshire, Simon Jones, Emma Jones, Isabel Jonet, Caitlin Kennedy, Jason Maguire, Margaret McKeegan, Jenny Moore, Rachel Smith, Alex Staniforth and Jean Turner.

Whether you’re from down the road or from far afield, the Olympics are an event that brings everyone together. We hope everyone enjoys themselves at today’s extra special events!
