THE City of Swan is looking for volunteers to help welcome the Queen’s Baton when it arrives next month as part of the official Commonwealth Games Queen’s Baton Relay.

Deputy mayor Kevin Bailey said the City needed up to 50 volunteers to make sure the baton received the royal treatment.

“The baton will begin its journey in Midland before being carried down main roads, through schools, along rivers and through hundreds of spectators – all the way through Guildford,” he said.

“So we need your help to make sure the Baton’s journey is safe and of course a big success.”

Councillor Claire Scanlan said volunteers would play an integral role in the event.

“Our volunteers will be responsible for a variety of tasks including helping to keep the route clear, assisting the crowd and handing out information and giveaways, general event tasks and being friendly faces that help create a continuous buzz from start to finish.”
