A project to involve youngsters in the run-up to the Tour de France has inspired children at Haworth Primary School.

A class of 26 year five pupils created a large letter H, which will form part of a number of Hollywood-style “Welcome to Yorkshire” signs at outdoor locations across the Worth Valley.

Project Hollywood is being led by Worth Valley ward councillor Russell Brown, who visited Haworth Primary, taking with him the materials to construct the letter.

He helped children assemble the structure, which will be included in one of the signs erected in a field overlooking the Tour race route in Oxenhope.

All pupils had a chance to put their signatures on the completed letter.

Head teacher Helen Thompson said: “The pupils had a fabulous time – they really enjoyed working with Coun Brown.

“We’re keen to be involved with as many Tour-related community initiatives as we can. It was good to see our children doing this kind of collaborative work and being part of something that will hopefully leave a lasting legacy for Haworth.”
