Torch Route in Barking and Dagenham
Barking and Dagenham is very proud to be one of the six host boroughs for the London 2012 Games. The borough will be a host location for the Olympic Torch Relay on Sunday 22 July 2012, when local people will be able to line the streets in celebration and welcome the Olympic Flame to this part of London.
Being a host borough, with the Games on our doorstep is a unique opportunity, that many residents will only experience once in their lifetimes, so we hope you will get involved in our events and projects.
'Your Games, Your Borough, Be Part of It'.
