Richmond Northampton Residents were visited by an Olympic Torch Bearer John Fry on the Day of the Jubilee celebrations.
Residents were able to talk to John and had the opportunity of holding the torch. John ran in the Herefordshire district and had been nominated through Birmingham sports council for his dedication to "In-line Speed Skating".
There were many Jubilee activities during the day in the village including a treasure hunt and best hat competition but Johns visit made the day a wonderful success.
The day was finally rounded off with afternoon cream tea.
