JUBILEE: The build up to the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee has been given an Olympic flavour by members of the Women’s Institute as they pass a special baton around Northants.

Ladies from Hartwell WI were confronted by a Roman Centurion at the top of Bury Mount as they handed the Indian silver scroll holder to members of the Towcester Evening WI last week.

The following day a WI member took the scroll on a tandem bike ride with cyclist from the A5 Rangers as it continued its journey around the county.
