The Olympic Flame passed within metres of Torse offices in Nottingham’s Lace Market yesterday evening around 6.40pm. Some members of Torse staff took the opportunity to watch from the third story whilst others stood at ground level and watched the flame literally pass the front door. Jane Torvill and Christopher Dean were due to appear with the flame in the city centre and were whisked along in a police vehicle along with the coaches and floats associated with the torch relay. High Pavement was the final stretch of the route to Market Square in Nottingham, where the torch relay would conclude for the day.
The new Torse head office located in the well established and sought after business area of Nottingham city centre, Nottingham Lace Market has attracted much interest from the local press. The Nottingham Evening Post has published a story admiring Torse’s decision to move into such a prestigious location that holds so much history behind the original industries of Nottingham. Well that’s PR for you!
