Tour De Yorkshire (PAC.06.04.2017/7)


Councillor Hand-Davis spoke of the recent decoration of the church, as part of the preparation for the Tour De Yorkshire, with more planned over the coming three weeks.


Thanks were given to Mark Dransfield and his successful negotiations, which has resulted in three sportifs riding through the town on the day of the race.  Thanks were also given to all those who had supported arrangements so far, with the Town Council and Penistone Show Committee having organised events to coincide with the Tour.


Land art was being created, which was hoped would feature on television, and it was hoped that the route would be ridden for months after the event.


Members praised the decoration in Oxspring, and the window displays in Penistone.


RESOLVED that the report be noted.
