Tour of Britain

As you may have heard by now, the UK’s top cycling race visits Flintshire on Wednesday 11th September as part of the WIRRAL Stage of the race. Details are included in the attached poster and map.

Airbus are proud this year to be sponsoring the Wirral stage and welcome the race to this area and we would like to encourage as many community groups, residents and schools to cheer the race along the route as it passes through our community. The race will be broadcast live throughout the day on ITV4 so we have a great opportunity to show the world how proud we are of our communities.

Already we have engaged with local schools to design the start flag for the Wirral stage. The winner was Maddison from Hawarden Village Primary School whose design will now be made into a flag and she will start the race on 11th September and a press release will be issued tomorrow as we count down 50 days to the race stage.

As I have already mentioned, this is a unique opportunity to welcome the world’s top cyclists as they pass through our local communities and I would be grateful if you could share the poster with local community groups, interest groups, schools etc so we can build a fantastic community spirit to join us as we cheer on the riders.
