Updated: Details of Olympic Torch Relay Through Theale

The torch will be paraded through Theale next Wednesday (July 11th).

The parade will start in Hoad Way at about 10:05. The torch will then be carried through the High Street and Church Street. It will finish at the junction of The Green and St. Ives Close at about 10:20.

About 3,500 schoolchildren are expected to watch the torch carried through Theale. There will also be many adults (one torch bearer has invited 50 family and friends!)

Parking in the above roads will be banned between 1 am and midday. Cars illegally parked will be towed into adjacent roads. Please note that the parking ban also applies to vehicles with a resident's parking permit.

Temporary car parks will be provided at the eastern end of the High Street (between Woodfield Way and the M4) and on the recreation ground in Englefield Road (entrance next to the medical centre). The latter may not be available if there is too much more rain, though.

These roads will also be closed from about 30 minutes before the torch is due.

Please note that the torch will be carried in a vehicle between Calcot and Theale and between Theale and Thatcham.
