Council seeks Olympic Flame memories
Olympic Flame’s visit to the borough on Monday 18 June, Scarborough
Borough Council is asking people to share their experiences of the
day, whether that be digital photographs, video footage, comments,
poems or hand drawn or painted pictures.
The council’s Communications
team hopes to use the contributions people send in to create an
online record of experiences that will be a true representation of
the many different communities the Olympic Flame visited.
Communications Officer, said: “We know that there are many people
that have their own special records of the Flame’s visit and we
think these should be celebrated and shared as widely as possible.
From images of friends and family lining the route waving
flags, to paintings of Torchbearers and rhyming couplets about the
colourful convoy, we want them all so that we can demonstrate
exactly what it meant to the people of our borough to have their
moment to shine.”
Contributions should be sent
by email to email@example.com
Memories expressed as hand drawn pictures or paintings need to be
digitally scanned and saved as a jpeg image before being emailed;
this will ensure that contributors don’t have to physically part
with their work. All contributors will have their name
mentioned on the website unless they wish to remain anonymous.
Once contributions have been gathered, the online resource
will be available to view at www.scarborough.gov.uk/coast2012
