Call to clean up grubby signposts for Tour

First published in Keighley

A councillor asked whether Bradford Council would be cleaning up the road signs and milestones in his parish before the Grand Depart arrives in the village.

Coun Derrick Hopkinson, of Oxenhope Parish Council, said: “Many of these signs are looking grubby, so it would be good to see them at their best.”

Responding during the parish council’s April full meeting, chairman Coun Neal Cameron said: “I don’t think I’ve ever seen these signs cleaned.”

Coun Tony Maw said the village’s upper football pitch would become a temporary camp site. He added that on July 5 there would be a ceilidh band playing in the community centre with a bar provided by one of Oxenhope’s sports clubs.

Coun Cameron said he would like to know what parking provision will be available for those residents who will need to shift their cars off the race route. Coun Hopkinson said he would contact Bradford Council to try and find out.
