Paralympian James Roe – Civic Reception
THURSDAY, 13TH SEPTEMBER 11.45 ONWARDS STARTING AT THE CLUB HOUSE
Olympic and Paralympic fever has swept the country and our athletes have achieved outstanding success at both games.
Nothing can be more rewarding for an athlete than to stand on the podium to receive a medal. The whole country responds with a sense of pride and jubilation, but in the athlete’s home town, that pride has no bounds.
Such is the feeling in Stratford-upon-Avon, as we celebrate James Roe’s great achievement of winning a Gold Medal in the Mixed Coxed Four at the Paralympics on Sunday last.
The Mayor, Keith Lloyd and the Town Council cordially invite you to a Civic Reception in James’ honour at the Town Hall on Thursday 13 September, 2012 at 12:45pm.
James is due to arrive at the Town Hall at 12:55pm having first taken a victory tour in an open top bus around the town. Weather permitting, the Town Council would be grateful if guests could await James’ arrival outside the Town Hall, so they can witness his entrance on to the balcony at 1:00pm to present his medal to the town. We are sure that Stratford-upon-Avon will not disappoint in showing exuberant enthusiasm for James’ outstanding achievement, and union flags will be provided to assist with the celebration. Sheep Street will be subject to a road closure order
