A group formed to oversee Silsden’s involvement in the Tour de France has held its inaugural meeting.

It includes representatives of Silsden Town Council, the youth council and gala committee.

He added: “It’s a comprehensive group, open to all, with unlimited membership. The intention is to co-ordinate Tour activity around the town.”
