“It is incredibly exciting that the Birmingham 2022 Queen’s Baton Relay will be visiting Redditch.

“When I brought the Chief Executive of the Birmingham 2022, Ian Reid, to Redditch, I said I wanted our town to be involved in the games, and so I’m thrilled we’re going to get the opportunity to experience the buzz of the Commonwealth Games.

“This will be a very special moment for Redditch, and for the Batonbearers. I hope as many residents as possible will get down to Arrow Valley Country Park on July 23rd to soak up the atmosphere and to be part of the Commonwealth Games experience.”
