Bradshaw Get Together to Get Creative for the Tour de Yorkshire

Bradshaw is holding a village community get together on Monday 25 February, 7:30pm at Bradshaw Cricket Club15A Bradshaw Lane, Halifax HX2 9XB for ideas to get creative together and make Bradshaw a sight to behold!

Also, hear about the celebrations planned for the day, come and get involved with your village community activities and put your own ideas forward.

The Tour de Yorkshire begins on Thursday 2 May, with the race coming to Calderdale on Sunday 5 May, starting from the Piece Hall in Halifax and passing through Bradshaw that day.

EMBRACE THE DAY and make it a day to remember.

What can YOU do to promote Bradshaw Village as the Tour de Yorkshire passes  through?

If everyone on the route through the village decorates a piece of their house or part of the village, imagine what a spectacle we would have.
