Volunteers are needed to act as marshals as the Commonwealth baton passes through Moray.
The baton will visit the county from the afternoon of July 2 until the morning of July 4 and will pass through more than a dozen towns and villages along the route.
The volunteers will require to give 30 minutes to an hour of their time to ensure that everything goes smoothly and that the crowds lining the route stay safe.
It is estimated that upwards of 90 volunteers will be needed to provide adequate cover during the baton’s Moray leg before its journey to Glasgow for the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games on July 23.
Moray Council sports development officer Kim Paterson, who will be one of the baton bearers, said: “Although the marshals’ duties will not be onerous, they will nonetheless be important in ensuring that spectators keep a safe distance from the baton convoy and don’t put themselves in any danger.
“The baton will keep to a tight schedule and will move through fairly quickly so the marshals will only require to be in position for a fairly short time and they will be supplied with hi-vis tabards so they can be easily identifiable.
“We would like to hear from local clubs and organisations whose members may like to become involved in ensuring the smooth passage of the Queen’s baton relay through their communities.”
The games take place from July 23 to August 3 in various venues across Glasgow.
