Harriet Harman

Labour Member of Parliament for Camberwell & Peckham

The Olympic torch comes to Peckham - 26/07/12

It was a real family occasion in Camberwell and Peckham today as parents and children lined the streets to welcome the Olympic torch to Peckham. Lots of people had made their own flags and torches so there was not just one torch, there were hundreds - everyone wants to play their part!
















Harriet and Sterling Muschett - Sterling was nominated by members of the Peckham Pride Basketball Club where he is one of the head coaches and the founder of the club. He was nominated to carry the torch for the work he does with young people in the Borough.
