Raymond Blanc carries the Olympic Flame
10 July 2012
On Tuesday 10 July 2012, Raymond Blanc, OBE, carried the Olympic Flame in Wallingford, Oxfordshire.
Raymond began his journey in High Street Wallingford, and continued up St Martin's Street. Raymond commented:
“This is a huge honour for me and I’m thrilled to be part of this historic time – which shows Great Britain at its very best.”
Other noted carriers included: Chef Heston Blumenthal (Slough), football legend, Ray Wilkins (Egham) and Sir Steve Redgrave who received the Flame from Henley and was in a boat and travelled northwards from the jetty at Thameside, under the bridge, then onto the jetton on the right hand side at Leander Boat Club.
DVD of Raymond Blanc's hugely successful five part series - The Very
Hungry Frenchman - broadcast on BBC2 earlier this year, is now on sale.
