Villagers are invited to attend a meeting tonight, Thursday, about plans being made for the Tour de France this summer.

The Grand Depart of the international cycle race will visit Addingham twice, on July 5 and 6, and local and regional organisations, and local authorities, are busy planning for the visit and the influx of tourists to the area.

The meeting tonight, at Addingham Memorial Hall, Main Street, will hear an update from Bradford Council on its plans for the village. The meeting starts at 7.30pm.
