Dick and Dom are on a mission to help local areas welcome the Olympic flame and have made this video at Stanley Primary School to kick-start the Olympics ‘line the streets’ campaign.
The School’s children demonstrate various ways that they can support the Olympics in their community including tidying up, helping out with an Olympic Torch Relay school party, making Olympic flame-inspired cakes, hats, shakers and by planting Olympic-coloured flowers!
There will be briefings about how the games will affect residents and businesses across the borough in the days surrounding events being held here. These are being arranged by Richmond Council, the Police, TFL and The London 2012 Organising Committee.
Teddington’s meetings will be on Saturday 21st April 2-3pm at Teddington Baptist Church and Thursday 26th April 6:30-7:30pm at Teddington School.
Sections of road along the cycle road race routes between Teddington and Twickenham have already recently resurfaced in preparation for these events.
Teddington’s main commercial streets will be a awash with flags and bunting, organised by the Teddington Business Community, to celebrate the Olympics & Paralympic and the road race events are expected to bring many visitors to the area.
If you won’t get a chance to make it to the London Olympics, there is a local version happening for dogs!

Local businesses are asked to join in by having stalls at the event – please get in touch with the vets if you are interested.
