Sorrento Park will be full of activities and entertainment on the day, including a free community morning tea followed by an official ceremony with the baton.

Frankston Council has moved its Waterfront Festival to February 10-11 to coincide with the Queen’s Baton’s arrival. “Frankston is excited to be a host of the GC2018 Queen’s Baton Relay and thinks the movement of The Waterfront Festival will showcase our magnificent city to a national audience,” the council says on its website. “The festival will remain in the same format, taking on February’s weather, with some additional programming elements added in on Sunday, February 11, to accommodate the relay, possibly even a visit from Borobi the unstoppable Koala, which is the 2018 Commonwealth Games mascot.”

Across the country, 3800 baton-bearers are expected to carry the baton during the 100-day countdown to the Games opening ceremony. They were nominated by their peers for achievements and contributions to their community.

The Peninsula’s baton bearers are:  Light Up Autism Foundation founder Bianca Appleford, from Rye; domestic violence campaigner and 2015 Australian of the Year Rosie Batty, from Tyabb; Jodie Carroll, from Blairgowrie; Terence Ernest Cox, from Rosebud; John Ellis, from Rye; Wendy Grant, from Capel Sound; Colleen Mackay, from Capel Sound; Catherine Montalto, from Rye; Donna Nettlefold, from Rye; Pam Rowler, from Dromana; and Kaye Thomas, from McCrae.

N’arweet Carolyn Briggs, a respected elder of the Boon Wurrung people, and Christopher May, creator of Young Veterans, will run as feature bearers in the Frankston leg of the relay.

For Mr May, a veteran of two missions to Afghanistan, it’s a “great honour” and an opportunity to send a message to young veterans that “you can go on to do great things if you choose”. He and his brother, Scott, co-founded Young Veterans, and through their ongoing dedication to the cause they help save lives.

Frankston’s baton-bearers are N’arweet Carolyn Briggs, singer-songwriter Anthony Callea, Olympian Debbie Flintoff-King, Jane Jelekainen, Robert Kabbas, Dan Langelaan, Christopher May, Lisa McLeish, Sarah Miller, Tina Miller, Bailey Miller, Darren Murphy, Paul Olsson, Ray Peak, John Pingiaro, Matthew Rizzo, Trevor Vincent and Jake Ward.
