THIS month’s Queen’s Baton relay was the second time the City of Swan had hosted the relay this century. Midland and Guildford earlier played host to it after the relay came to the region in 2006 in the lead-up to the Melbourne Commonwealth Games. During the ’06 relay, the baton visited Moorditj Noongar Community College. 1966 Commonwealth Games cyclist Phillip Bristow-Stagg carried it while riding several laps around Midvale Speed Dome.
