Firestation Centre for Arts and Culture have created The Games Walk, an interactive public art trail on the banks of the river thames from Eton to Dorney

 

On saturday we cycled and walked our way to the Firestation to launch The Games Walk project and show off the hard work Sustrans have put into the cycle networks around Eton & Dorney. We were joined by Jenna Hawkey, a GB Canoe Team Kyacker and the Ramblers Association who kindly led the walk through the Games Walk riverside route.

Once safely back at the Firestation, we heard from speakers from the Olympic Deliverance Authority, Sustrans and a Royal Borough of Windsor and Eton councillor and Jenna spoke wonderfully about what life was like as training locally for London2012 and how the Games Walk meant locals could become involved in the Games too. I think it’s safe to say Jenna is now our favourite athlete and all our fingers are crossed for her next qualifying round.

Our very special guests The Olympic Mascots rounded up the day. Wenlock and Mandeville met the kids and posed for photos to finish off what was a wonderful launch. A massive thank you to everyone who came down and helped out.
