People are being urged to create bunting and artwork to decorate the district route for the Tour de France.

Bradford Council wants to hear from groups and individuals interested in getting involved.

Ideas could range from knitting or sewing bunting to making flags and banners welcoming people to towns and villages along the course.

Councillor Susan Hinchcliffe, the council’s executive member for employment, skills and culture, said: “There are some really creative people in Bradford district, and we would love for them to get involved.

“This is just one way in which people can be part of creating the atmosphere for when the world’s largest free sporting event comes to our area.”
