With the Queen’s Baton Relay coming to Alnwick tomorrow ahead of the Glasgow Commonwealth Games, Gazette reader Cheryl Chisholm shared these photos of the relay in 1986, which was on route from London to Edinburgh.

The group pictured in their relay T-shirts were all Glendale Middle School pupils and carried the baton for a two-mile stretch just north of Wooler.
