Have your say

An in bloom group will petal to the medal for next year’s cycle-themed souvenir calendar.

Ripponden in Bloom are gearing up to release their annual calendar that celebrates the success of the Tour de France through the village.

Village businesses have sponsored the calendar and money raised from the sale will fund future the group for their work around Ripponden.

The group raised £3,000 last year from the sale of the calendar, along with stalls at local events and a grant from the Ripponden Parish Council.

The money was used to transform the village into a colourful spectacle of flowers for when the tour passed through on July 6.

The calendar will cost £5 and will be available from local businesses around the village, as well as Triangle and Barkisland Post Offices and Far Barsey Farm Shop.

There is limited stock available.
