Wednesday 10th September 2014 - The Tour of Britain hits Broadway!

My BAG volunteering chums John Blofield, Stuart Warnants. and Mike Speake  ran our publicity gazebo  in the village and had  a very hectic  morning! Here is John's report:

A successful event from our point of view, with a number of donations given and several share booklets handed out to potential shareholders. There was a lot of interest in the bridge works and the railway's progress towards Broadway. The good weather and entertainment made it a happy occasion, helped by the fun bike race (which included the Icicle Tricycle ice cream trike usually parked on the High Street!). The first prize was a hamper donated by Budgens supermarket, and the winners of the race were the team from ... Budgens supermarket! They generously donated their prize to us, and we had it auctioned off, raising a princely £22. Thanks go to Budgens and also to Stuart Warnants and Mike Speake who helped out.

Tony Boucher took these excellent photos of the race itself. We are looking for the cycling experts to name the riders!
