[QUOTE=Drifter]It would be interesting to know what % of local people are not interested in this at all.
Yes it may only happen once in your lifetime but in all honesty there are better ways to spend an afternoon.
I guess the fact itís going to Pepper Rd is nothing to do with the fact that Addidas UK is based there!

I think you'd be surprised, okay yeah itís not like the Queen is coming for a swift visit but there are children and local people who have been chosen to carry the torch. If it was me I would be fairly disappointed if I didn't receive a limited amount of support from the locals.

It's an event which okay through Stockport may not be watched worldwide or even nationally but it is indeed as you pointed out something which you will only see once in your lifetime.

Besides, it's going to happen around 8am-9am so I'm very happy you will have the afternoon to spend whichever way you class better than seeing the Olympic torch on its final run down to London. Are you going to watch the games? I'm not so itís about the closest I can get.

I'm not sure what the insinuation with the Adidas factory is but I'm sure this is planned this way as there is a large enough area for the 'crew' or is this maybe some large conspiracy theory involving Philips, NXP or Harris Interactive?
