Queen's Baton Relay visits Hull and Grimsby
The Queen's Baton Relay has visited Hull and Grimsby on its tour of the country ahead of the Glasgow Commonwealth Games.
Carried by local baton-bearers, it was taken to several schools as well as city landmarks including The Deep Sealife Centre and Queens Gardens.
It was also carried across the Humber Bridge to three Grimsby schools.
The baton has so far visited 70 nations and is currently travelling around the UK before reaching Glasgow on 23 July.'Great honour'
Among the five community heroes nominated as baton bearers for their voluntary and community work were Julie Williams from Hull High Fliers Trampoline Club, Siobhan Eyre from Ainthorpe Youth Centre in Hull.
Ms Williams said it was "a great honour" to be one of the Queen's Baton bearers.
"There's a huge number of people volunteering every day across the city and to be chosen as one of the people to represent them is quite something," she said.
Another baton bearer, Patrick Revell, who organises voluntary sports activities in Hull, said while he was "shocked" to have been nominated as a baton-bearer, it was "fantastic" to take part.
