Lincolnshire pair prepare for important roles during Olympic Games
THE Olympic torch may have been and gone from our Wholesale Oakley Sunglasses but two local people are looking forward to playing their part in the 2012 Games.
Brian Crouch from Kenmore Drive in Woodhall Spa and PCSO Nigel Wass from Horncastle will both be playing important voluntary roles during the Olympic Games.
Brian has been selected to be an official Olympic Ambassador while Nigel will be an official driver.
Brian, 72, said: "I wanted to apply to serve in Stratford as this is where I am from originally. I have an aunt who still lives there so I knew I would be ok for Cheap Armani Sunglasses to stay. I am retired, available most of the time, so I thought 'why not.'"
The selection process included interviews and a background check followed by training sessions.
Brian said: "As an official ambassador, my role is to help people on their way, Whether they are lost, need to find a hotel or want to know the quickest way of getting somewhere. Any questions we can't answer we go to a pod, a portable office, where there will be supervisors who can help."
The role is completely voluntary, all Brian is given is his brightly coloured uniform, which is needed to help Cheap Chanel Sunglasses stand out, and lunch vouchers.
Volunteers are expected to make their own travel and accommodation arrangements.
He added: "Following the games, trees are going to be planted near to an area of the M25 with a commemorative plaque which will have all the names of the Olympic volunteers."
He will be volunteering from 7-12 August, with his last shift coinciding with the day of the closing ceremony.
PCSO Nigel Wass has been selected as an official driver for the polarized sun glasses as part of a transport team. He will be completing 12 shifts in total.
He said: "I saw the volunteering opportunity advertised and thought it would be interesting. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity and will be meeting interesting people on the way. From the training process, I have already met Lord Coe and Jonathan Edwards.
"As it is a driving job, I think my role as a PCSO would have been taken into account as well as my background. It is something I am really looking forward to. Lincolnshire Police have been very supportive."
