What an awesome day/weekend!!

Many thanks to the Sportsfield Trust guys for providing the BBQ facility.  I didn’t think it would be THAT busy at Wormald Green but it was definitely the place to be….

The biggest annual sporting event in the world is taking place… on our doorstep! To give everyone in the village the best chance of seeing this once-in-a-lifetime event on July 5th, the proprietors of Monkton Moor Garage are generously opening up their forecourt for locals, their families and guests on Saturday 5th July to watch the parade and the Tour de France racers sprint down to Harrogate.

There’ll be a cook-your-own bbq so bring your picnic and join in the fun from 12 noon. Please note there are no toilet facilities available.
