Taunton is going to be THE place to be this weekend and on Monday when the torch arrives, there are major activities all day so visitor numbers are expected to rocket. With media vehicles taking up some of the town centre parking,and the market going on, everyone is being advised to use the Park and Ride scheme which will be operating until 9pm from both Gateway and Silk Mills.
