Anyone who wants to be considered is being called upon to attend a public meeting on Tuesday July 10, 7pm-8.30pm.

The meeting, which takes place in the Council Chamber at the Civic Centre in Morden, will give people the chance to hear the plans for the day and discuss performance positions along the route.

The Olympic Torch will be coming to Wimbledon on Monday July 23. For details on the route through the town: Click here.

Cabinet member for Community and Culture, Councillor Nick Draper said: "The Olympic Torch coming here is a once in a lifetime opportunity so if you run a choir, play in a band, cheerlead or a local performer and want to be involved then come to the meeting and see if we can fit you in to the torch relay plans."
