Queen's Baton Relay Visits East Staffordshire

East Staffordshire Borough Council is pleased to announce that The Birmingham 2022 Queen’s Baton Relay visited the Borough on Wednesday 20th July.

The morning started at Uttoxeter Leisure Centre which saw crowds of people welcoming this year’s Batonbearers to the event. At 8:10am the Baton started its journey through Bramshall Park and saw each of the inspirational Batonbearers complete their leg of the Relay.

Everyone Active’s contract manager, Dan Mclean, said: “It was great to welcome the Birmingham 2022 Queen’s Baton Relay to Uttoxeter Leisure Centre. It’s not every day that you get to have your picture taken with the Queen’s Baton and I’m sure the members of Dove Valley Swimming Club enjoyed the opportunity.

We hope the baton relay inspires people of all ages to be active at this facility this summer and to enjoy watching the upcoming Commonwealth Games.”

The Queen’s Baton Relay then went on to St George’s Park where it was greeted by groups of local school children taking part in a celebration of football. Batonbearers then took the Baton on a tour of St George’s Park, seeing the Baton pass from one Batonbearer to the next.

Cllr Bev Ashcroft, Cabinet Member for Tourism and Cultural Development said: “I was blown away by the amount of support shown for the Batonbearers at both Uttoxeter Leisure Centre and St George’s Park. I would like to thank all those involved for making this a day to remember, and I wish the Birmingham 2022 Queen’s Baton Relay the best of luck on the last leg of its journey!”
