    The Queen's Baton Relay in Aberaeron

    Every four years (in the same year as the Winter Olympics and halfway between Summer Olympics), the members of the British Commonwealth send delegations to the Commonwealth Games (this year being held in Glasgow, Scotland). To celebrate the Games, a baton relay is started outside Buckingham Palace in London where the monarch places a speech they will read at the opening ceremony and then send it around the Commonwealth. The baton then travels to each member of the Commonwealth and in the case of the United Kingdom tours around it's member states (Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney, Sark, the Isle of Man, Northern Ireland, Wales, England and Scotland) and on May 28th 2014, it was the turn of Aberaeron to host the baton. Here are a collection of photographs that capture the day's events
