image for Dorking Review Brings Olympic Torch To Town

The Surrey town currently enjoying unprecedented attention thanks to a global publishing sensation is reeling again following today's announcement of next year's Olympic Torch Route.

On day 63 of the torch's tour of the UK, it will visit Dorking on it's way from Maidstone to Guildford.

This is further terrific news for the former sleepy town which shot to fame earlier this year on the back of the phenomenal success of The Dorking Review.

A spokesman for the Olympic Torch Tour Planning Committee said: "We weren't going to do Dorking, but given the high profile the town has at the moment, we changed our plans to include it.

"It will be great publicity for the Olympics to be associated with the book and the town in which it's set."

The news that the torch is to visit the town follows close on the heels of the news that the games' bicycle road race will also pass through.

"It just keeps getting better," said Chamber of Commerce chair Norbert Fandango.

"Everyone's really excited. We can't thank the publishers and writers of the book enough. When all the Olympic dust has settled, we may have to consider granting the the freedom of Dorking."
