THOUSANDS turned out in Blyth to watch the Olympic torch relay, which included two of the proud runners chosen by P&G (Procter & Gamble) work colleagues at Seaton Delaval.
Carl Grieves, a chemstore technician, ran the first P&G leg and handed over to warehouse team leader John Liddell.
Both men were nominated from the 380-strong workforce for making a “significant difference to lives in their community”
Tracey Wales, P&G’s community matters co-ordinator at Seaton Delaval, said: “Congratulations to both Carl and John for their commitment both at work and in the communities they live.
“We are also planning a celebration at the factory so that all the staff can see the Olympic torches which they are allowed to keep.”
