TORCHBEARERS who ran through the borough last Friday were invited to a special civic reception to mark their achievement.
More than a dozen of those who helped carry the flame through North Tyneside attended the event at the council’s Quadrant headquarters on Cobalt Business Park.
It had been arranged by council chairman Frank Lott, with borough Mayor Linda Arkley also on hand to congratulate the torchbearers and hear their stories.
Afterwards, they were presented with a special gift.
