There was a carnival atmosphere as more than 1,000 people flocked to the Queen’s Baton Relay at Monmouth School for Boys today.

Pupils from Overmonnow, Kymin View and Osbaston Primary Schools were among the many children who enjoyed the event.

A rendition of the Welsh national anthem from Carys and a rugby-themed dance troupe from Monmouth School for Girls pupils, choreographed by teacher Rhyan Parry, added to the special occasion.

Young Welsh trampolinist Lawrence, who carried the baton with fellow trampolinist Zoe, said it was a day to remember.

“It was great and one of the best things I have done in my life so far; it was amazing,” said Lawrence, who has won Welsh Under 13 and Under 11 titles.

“The best thing was when my friends ran around the track with me.”

The Baton for the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games 2018 came face to face with the very first Queen’s Baton which started life in Wales as the prelude to the British Empire and Commonwealth Games in Cardiff in 1958.
