East Dunbartonshire residents are gearing up for a major sporting event this summer - the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
As part of the celebrations leading up to the games The Queen’s Baton, containing a special message, will pass through East Dunbartonshire on its way to the opening ceremony in Glasgow.
Many local residents have been chosen to carry the baton part of the way. (See this week’s Kirkintilloch and Bishopbriggs Herald for more on this story)
East Dunbartonshire MP Jo Swinson can’t wait for the Commonwealth Games this summer.
She said: “This is such a historic occasion for Glasgow and for Scotland.
“I am also proud that East Dunbartonshire is contributing so greatly to the Queen’s Baton Relay.
