TOUR OF BRITAIN COMING ON 11 SEPTEMBER – GET INVOLVED!
You’ll know from the Tour de France how much fun communities get from being involved and welcoming the huge caravan of cars, vans and, of course, bikes as they sweep through by decorating their towns and villages – now is our chance!
LET’S MAKE OUR MARK AND WELCOME THIS WORLD FAMOUS EVENT BY DECORATING THE OUTSIDE OF YOUR HOUSE AND GARDEN – ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE ON THE MAIN ROAD! USE OLD BIKES, BIKE WHEELS, FLAGS – GO FOR IT!!!
As well as this, some of our community groups have come together to do their bit to put Stow on the map as the Tour of Britain speeds through Heriot, down the A7, through Stow and on towards Lauder on Saturday 11 September. We are working towards making it a day to remember for us all! Here’s the link to the Tour of Britain website that will give you more details of timings (we’re Stage 7). https://www.tourofbritain.co.uk/
We’ll be letting you know exactly what is happening over the coming days: it’s going to include flags and bunting through Stow; free cycle safety checks; informal group rides leading up to an action packed Saturday 11 September. Further details will be posted here or on the Community Trust Facebook page.
