We shall be reflecting fully on all of these in early course. Please bear with us for a few days.

TOUR DE BEMPTON

Didn’t we have a lovely time when Bradley came to Bempton!

Well done everyone. We put on a wonderful show and definitely “did our bit” to give Le Tour a great send off from the East Riding. (We lent it to North Yorkshire for the afternoon but it’s back tomorrow). The villages looked fabulous, we lined the streets and packed both Halls ( a big thank you to all the volunteers) and provided the bulk of Look North’s T V coverage (starring Bempton School, Shona, Betty, Shona,Tony, Shona and our very own Town Crier sorry if  I’ve forgotten anyone – did I mention Shona?). There should be some good selfies of village ladies with the hunky police outriders
