Way back in October 2021, Her Majesty The Queen placed her Message to the Commonwealth into The Queen's Baton, beginning the 16th official Queen’s Baton Relay. On Friday, after a journey of many months around the world, the Queen's Baton arrived at the iconic Broadway Tower in my constituency.
A particular highlight for me was meeting 109 year old John Farringdon (believed to be the oldest man in the West Midlands!) arriving at the Tower with the Baton. He said he'd never had such a wonderful day!
