The Commonwealth Games Birmingham 2022 Queen’s Baton Relay travelled through north Pembrokeshire earlier today, carried by a host of local people, joining the hundreds around the world chosen for the honour.

Local schoolchildren, members of Fishguard Sea Cadets, people who make a real difference to their communities in Pembrokeshire and those with an inspiring story to tell were among the Batonbearers.

The relay arrived at Castell Henllys and proceeded through the Iron Age village, carried by Eglwyswrw School pupils; before reaching Lower Town Fishguard along the Harbour before being transfered by boat to Goodwick.

At Goodwick Parrog it came face to face with Jemima’s Army who repelled the Last Invasion of Britain, and then across Goodwick Beach.

Finally the relay ended at Ysgol Bro Gwaun where further activities were planned throughout the day, including a World record attempt at passing a rugby ball!
