Olympic Flame visits Stockport on the morning of Sunday 24 June 2012.
Michelle’s Upcycled Sculptures and her volunteers will be outside Stockport Town Hall to welcome Olympic Flame.
Between 8am-9am the torch will be carried by a succession of runners along the A6 past Stockport Town Hall, Stockport College, through Heaviley and Great Moor to the junction of New Moor Lane in Stepping Hill where, still in relay, it will turn right into New Moor Lane and along Bramhall Moor Lane
