LINLITHGOW’S answer to the Olympic torch is making its way round local schools before the main Games event next month.

So far, the torch has been carried from Winchburgh to Bridgend, to Torphichen, Westfield and to Linlithgow Bridge before stopping at Linlithgow’s Springfield Primary before the holidays.

The Linlithgow Games opening ceremony will take place at Prestonfield football ground on Wednesday, May 9, where the school’s Olympic Choir will entertain, there will be a torch ceremony and a finale of fireworks, before the sporting events kick off.

For more progress on the torch’s route, see the Journal and Gazette every week.
