Join in torch mosaic workshops

PEOPLE living in south Lincolnshire have the chance to help make a lasting commemoration of the Olympic torch’s journey through the district.

Mosaic artist Fiona Gurney is inviting members of the public to join in a series of free workshops to create five special mosaics that will act as permanent reminders of this summer’s major sporting event.
