Thanks to all those who came out to see the Torch - you did us all proud!
Following the Torch Relay all the torchbearers were invited to Lancaster Town Hall for a civic reception to celebrate the day.
The mayor of Lancaster, Councillor Sheila Denwood, welcomed them to the town hall and also accepted one of the torches from Doris Collins, who completed the Scale Hall part of the relay, on behalf of the communities of the district.
The torch will be kept as a reminder of the special day and plans are currently being made to ensure that our communities are able to see it close up.
