Help Snaith & Cowick win the ‘Best Dressed Town’ Competition!!
Aiming to get as many people engaged and supporting the Tour de Yorkshire, Welcome to Yorkshire are hosting a ‘Best Dressed Town’ competition and we would love to see Snaith & Cowick try and win this title!!
We are sure you’ve all seen the yellow and blue bikes mounted on walls and in gardens during previous races, festooned with bunting and other decorations and we think it would be fantastic if residents and businesses alike got behind this competition to demonstrate our support for the Tour de Yorkshire coming through our parish.
We are therefore inviting all residents to decorate their house/garden/property by THURSDAY 3 MAY 2018 and the Town Council will award individual prizes to the ‘Best Dressed’ property and business. The competition will be independently judged on SATURDAY 5 MAY and the winners will be announced on our Facebook page and website. Good Luck!!
Win a Signed Christ Froome Race T-shirt!!
Yorkshire Ales have managed to secure a Sky Team shirt signed by the legendary cyclist CHRIS FROOME!!! You could be the lucky winner of this fabulous prize.
Raffle tickets are £5 each and are available from Yorkshire Ales.
All proceeds go to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, who are the official charity of the Tour de Yorkshire.
The winning ticket will be drawn on Saturday 5 May 2018!
