Councillor Hand-Davis updated the meeting on preparations being made for the Tour de Yorkshire (Yorkshire le Tour) coming through the area on Sunday 30th April, 2017.
Arrangements were being made to decorate the route with bikes and bunting, together with flowers in planters. It was likely that there would be a competition involving local businesses, and a focus on activity within the market barn in the Town Centre.
Members noted that Barnsley MBC was working with local landowners to create land art adjacent to the route.
It was noted that media engagement was crucial, and it was agreed to circulate detailed information once arrangements had been confirmed.
RESOLVED that the report be noted and that all Members work to promote the event when arrangements are confirmed.
