Council chiefs say they are “delighted” by the news the Queen’s Baton Relay will be coming to Lichfield and Burntwood.

It will visit the area on 20th July ahead of the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

The baton relay will arrive at the National Memorial Arboretum before heading for Kings Bromley, Lichfield city centre, Burntwood and Chasewater.

Cllr Iain Eadie, Lichfield District Council’s deputy leader, said:

“I am delighted the Queen’s Baton Relay is running through Lichfield district.

“This is great news and is bound to create enormous excitement during the run up to the Commonwealth Games.

“People across Lichfield district will be able to experience the buzz of Birmingham 2022 right here in their own communities by joining in the relay celebration.

“​I am really looking forward to seeing the baton as it passes through our district and supporting the local people who have the opportunity to carry it on its journey.”

Cllr Iain Eadie, Lichfield District Council
