Queen’s Baton Relay arrives on the Rock

Queens Baton Relay on tour in Gibraltar

The Queens Baton Relay team arrived on the Rock yesterday Sunday and have today toured some of the local schools.

Children from five middle schools had a chance to learn about the Commonwealth Games and the Baton whilst getting a chance to touch the modern torch which is now carried by the relay team. The Baton will next go to Malta before it completes what is one of the longest relays. The Baton itself carries a message from the Queen which will be delivered at the start of the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games later this year.
