The list of Angus batonbearers for the Commonwealth Games Queen’s Baton Relay has now been announced.
The Queen’s Baton Relay will start its Angus journey just after 8am on Saturday 28 June in Monifieth, when the Provost of Angus Helen Oswald and Monifieth elected members will welcome the Baton to the county at the North Balmossie Street boundary with Dundee. The baton is being carried by 90+ local batonbearers, each of whom will carry it for around 200m.
Congratulating the Angus batonbearers Councillor Jeanette Gaul, chair of the Angus Games Steering Group, said: “Huge congratulations to all of our batonbearers, it’s going to be a fantastic day of celebration in Angus as the baton travels around the county on Saturday, June 28! I’m sure that thousands of people will line the route to support our local community heroes and catch a glimpse of this iconic baton.”
