In Beverley, the town crier Michael Wood will lead the ringing of bells in Wednesday Market. People are welcome to arrive from 8.00am, and local traders will be opening early for the event. Every local school has been invited to send a pupil to represent them.
Everyone is encouraged to bring a bell to ring, even if it is on a bicycle or a ring tone on a mobile phone.
Graham said “I hope as many people as possible will get up early on the 27th to help ring in the Olympic Games. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, and we should mark it in style.”
