Oxenhope councillor says ‘coordinate for your Tour de France event’

Organisations arranging activities for next July’s Tour de France event need to improve how they co-ordinate with each other, according to a parish councillor.
“It’s great that we have this spontaneity,” he said.
“But I feel that all the parties involved are not yet connected. It’s a bit scattergun and it does feel like we’re knitting clouds at the moment.
“We need to balance people’s exciting ideas with the practicalities of preparing for this event.”
Coun Ashcroft added that one of the groups preparing for the event – Worth the Tour – was setting up a website, which should include a calendar of Tour-related activities in the area to help avoid clashes.
