Harper Adams University welcomes the Birmingham 2022 Queen’s Baton Relay

Posted 20 July

“It was a pleasure to welcome the Queen’s Baton to the Harper Adams campus as it makes its way to this year’s Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. With the Games just days away, there was a real sense of excitement – and I’d like to thank all the Batonbearers, their families, and the wider Queen’s Baton Relay team for visiting us. A special thanks, too, to the police, council staff, and of course the Harper Adams University staff who made the event such a memorable occasion on what proved to be the hottest day of the year so far – well done all!”

Harper Adams University has been proud to welcome the Birmingham 2022 Queen’s Baton Relay to campus.

Six Batonbearers took the Queen’s Baton around campus yesterday, Tuesday, July 19, with the final leg of its journey taking place in one of the University’s tractors.

The Batonbearers who took part during the day were Kathleen Ling, Jodie Blackadder-Weinstein, Rebecca Hampson, Helen Bourton, Jude Frost and Gemma Elsmore.

Their journey around campus was celebrated by Batonbearers’ family members, onlookers, and Harper Adams University staff, including Vice-Chancellor Professor Ken Sloan - who met the final Batonbearer, Dr Jodie Blackadder Weinstein, as she prepared for her journey with the Baton.

Professor Sloan said: “It was a pleasure to welcome the Queen’s Baton to the Harper Adams campus as it makes its way to this year’s Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
