HARPER Adams University has welcomed the Birmingham 2022 Queen’s Baton Relay to campus.
Six baton-bearers took the Queen’s Baton around campus on Tuesday, July 19, with the final leg of its journey taking place in one of the university’s tractors.
The baton-bearers who took part during the day were Kathleen Ling, Jodie Blackadder-Weinstein, Rebecca Hampson, Helen Bourton, Jude Frost and Gemma Elsmore.
Their journey around campus was celebrated by baton-bearers’ family members, onlookers, and Harper Adams University staff, including Vice-Chancellor Professor Ken Sloan – who met the final baton-bearer, Dr Jodie Blackadder-Weinstein, as she prepared for her journey with the baton.
Professor Sloan said: “It was a pleasure to welcome the Queen’s Baton to the Harper Adams campus as it makes its way to this year’s Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
“There was a real sense of excitement – and I’d like to thank all the baton-bearers, their families, and the wider Queen’s Baton relay team for visiting us.”
