Local Olympic Torchbearers Honoured

Hambletons Olympic torchbearers were honoured last week.They were presented with medals by Hambleton District Council Chairman, Councillor Bridget Fortune.  “I know that for many of our torchbearers the opportunity to carry the flame is honour enough,” she said.  “Their dedicated, often brave and selfless efforts have led to them being nominated to carry the torch and it is important that we should mark their achievements and show our appreciation as a district.  They have been inspirational for the thousands who watched them do their part of the relay.”And the special ceremony also praised local volunteers who gave up their time to act as stewards when the Torch Relay passed through the district on June 20th and thanked the various partners who supported the district council in the organisation of the relay.Councillor Fortune also praised Mike Dobson from Thirsk, who inspired her to pursue a career in youth work 40 years ago.  He gave her, her first job as a youth worker for North Yorkshire County Council based at Stokesley Youth Annexe.• The torchbearers from the Bedale area were: David Greaves, Suzy Walker, Lara Turner and Rachel Wilkinson• Easingwold area: George Conway, Roger Nicolls, Tom Hildreth and Jonathan Edwards• Northallerton area: Felicity Middleton, Fergus Roberts, Marc Scott, Laurence Whiteley, David McElhoney, Emma Casson and Alan Hinkes• Stokesley area: Rebecca Webster and Keith Wilcox• Thirsk area: Mike Dobson and Trevor Bosomworth
