Residents in Cragg Vale are set for a world record attempt by making the longest stretch of bunting to celebrate the Tour de France coming to Calderdale.

The Cragg Vale Community Association is looking for volunteers to help create the three-mile chain.

Sharon Le Corre, from the association, said: “I don’t think many people in Calderdale have a concept of how big it is - nothing like this will ever happen in Calderdale again.

“Lots of Calderdale won’t be taking part so we thought it would be nice for people from other areas to send us their bunting, which could feature the history of the community, the name of a particular famous person - something which means something to them.

“Anyone interested can email us at bunting@craggvale.co.uk.”

Meanwhile, on June 29 this year, there is a bike ride on the last leg of the 2014 Grand Depart, in reverse, going from Sheffield to Cragg Vale.

The following day, there is a round robin bike ride between the Robin Hood pubs in Cragg Vale and Pecket Well and back again, and the following weekend, there will be a fancy dress walk.

A new piece of art has been unveiled at Mytholmroyd train station by local artists Michelle Campbell, which is part of her Tour de Yorkshire 2014 collection.
