Day 7 and deployment in the Olympic park with the job of looking
after the Stratford gate entrance the main entrance to the event.
The day was all about hearts and minds but first the team set off
at a quick pace to the far side of the Olympic park to take a brief
chance for a complete team photo.
The team being split again in the next few days, there were
casualties but we made it. I was amazed at the size of the gate and
took a picture just after 7am a very different picture of the gate
that became a sea of people with a never ending flow. I was really
proud of the team as they again proved their skills in engaging
with the public though some of the staff may want to consider what
they put on their heads before they do it ! !
At the end of the day the team again proved Cheshire still have
it marching through the 150 thousand plus crowds ... Ok a little
more of a bimble than a march!
