Be a ba­ton bearer

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

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.
