Queen’s Baton continues its island relay
High priest Taunga Nui hands the Queen's Baton on to Tetake (Mama Toti) Robati outside the House of Ariki yesterday afternoon during a relay procession heading towards Te Au O Tonga. The main road was crowded around the island as locals young and old flocked to see the baton pass through their village. Drummers welcomed the baton carriers, while school children also leaned from bus windows to touch it as it passed through Arorangi. Representatives from each village took turns holding the baton along the way. 17111446

The Queen’s Baton continued its journey around Rarotonga with the second leg of the relay, starting at the boundary of Vaka Takitumu/Teau O Tonga yesterday.
