Queen's Baton Relay

On Monday, Dame Patsy and Sir David welcomed the Queen's Baton to Queenstown at the Airport, on its final leg of a journey around Commonwealth countries and territories before the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast. Their Excellencies accompanied Queen's Baton bearers Holly Robinson, Matt Randall, Hugo Inglis, and Donna Wilkins to Arrowtown School, the only school in New Zealand to have the opportunity to see the Baton and baton-bearers. The Baton also took pride of place at a reception hosted by Dame Patsy and Sir David later in the day.
