Boys' Brigade delivers baton on town relay
BOYS' Brigade members gave a silver baton a whistle stop tour of Tewkesbury as it passed through the town.
Her Majesty's Baton Relay stopped off at Tewkesbury as part of its journey from Balmoral to London.
The Boys' Brigade has organised the relay after the baton was personally presented by their patron the Queen. The baton arrived in Tewkesbury on Saturday onboard a Bell Boat at Croft Farm, paddled down to King Johns Bridge. An Army vehicle transported it down the High Street with a police escort to the abbey.
Met by the Reverend Canon Paul Williams, the Town Crier read a message of loyal greeting to the monarch, before the baton went to the top of the tower. A teddy bear then abseiled down the tower with the baton.

Tewkesbury Boys' Brigade Captain Andrew Baldwin said: "The challenge was to come up with the most innovative and novel ideas to carry the baton on its journey." It continued on its run through town and then by Ian Boskett's steam railway to HQ to be met by the mayor and Gloucestershire Deputy Lord Lieutenant and a guard of honour with county BB Companies' colours.
