The Commonwealth Games are being held in Birmingham this summer. It is going to be a glorious competition . As part of the run up, The Queen’s Baton Relay is taking place, where for 29 days the baton is carried the length and breadth of Britain. From around 4pm tomorrow, Gateshead will is lucky enough to have the baton passing through and being handed over, travelling from The Angel of The North to Saltwell Park and then down onto the Quayside. It will be quite a spectacle and an historical event right on our doorsteps. There are activities after school in both Saltwell Park and then down on The Quayside.
