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
Liz will be at the Hall at the pop in sessions on these days.
Thanks to Gareth and all who helped make the Hall look so brilliant.
All households in the villages have or will soon have received a flyer with details of events on Bank Holiday May 4th. There is something for everyone so do come along and join in the fun. Don’t forget the Hall will be open on Friday 1st May for the passage of the Tour de Yorkshire.
