Paralympic torch route through Lewisham announced

Lewisham Council says:

On Wednesday 29 August at approximately 3.15pm, the Paralympic Flame will arrive in Lewisham on Evelyn Street in Deptford. From Evelyn Street it will move to Deptford High Street, go past the new Deptford Lounge on Giffin Street, turn left into Deptford Church Street before handing over to Greenwich on Creek Road at approximately 3.50pm.

Teams of five inspirational Torchbearers will carry the Flame  – each one taking it in turn before they pass the Flame to the next team of five.

Local residents are being invited to help light the way to the Paralympic Games and celebrate the achievements of the Torchbearers as they move through Deptford. There will be entertainment throughout the afternoon at Deptford Lounge and as it is market day, there will be lots to see and do.
