Banffshire Parliamentarians on Queen's Baton Relay

Local Parliamentarians have welcomed the visit of the Queen’s Baton Relay to Banffshire.

Banffshire and Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson said:

“The Queen’s Baton Relay has been quite a spectacle and reminds us that the Commonwealth Games is all about community and shared spirit.

“The baton has been through dozens of countries before reaching Banffshire and will be through dozens more communities here in Scotland before reaching its destination in Glasgow. It is great to be a part of that epic journey!”

Moray MSP Richard Lochhead said:

"The atmosphere generated by the crowds was truly exciting as the baton was carried through with lots of cheers and smiles. It was great to see so many children joining in the celebrations as well as the wider community.

“The Commonwealth Games is a national event and its arrival in Banffshire reminds us that this sporting showcase is for everyone in all parts of the country and people of all ages are being inspired by Scotland hosting such an international event."

Angus Robertson MP said:

“The baton has been transported through Banffshire and Moray by air, sea and land bringing together people from many ages and backgrounds, from local volunteers to sports personalities to schoolchildren and service personnel.

“Glasgow 2014 is set to be a fantastic event and the Baton Relay has brought that excitement to the heart of many communities in Banffshire and Moray.”
