Be a baton bearer
VICTORIA Park is looking to pass the baton to “local legends”.
Baton bearers will be required when the Queen’s Baton travels through Victoria Park on February 24 next year on its way to the opening ceremony of the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
Mayor Trevor Vaughan said he was excited the Town would be involved with the Queen’s Baton Relay.
“This is an amazing event to be a part of and will showcase the Town of Victoria Park to the international community,” he said. d466348
“We have so many aspiring and accomplished people living in the Town, so I really encourage you to nominate someone who you think would make a deserving baton bearer.
“I’ll be following the Queen’s Baton around the world from the start on Commonwealth Day.”
The baton will also pass through South Perth on the same day, with the City of South Perth looking for more “local legends” to take it through the region.
Nominations can be made at www.gc2018.com/qbr.
