Residents in Calderdale who have registered their interest in becoming Tour Makers have one last chance to submit their applications before the deadline at the end of this month.

Up to 10,000 volunteering roles are up for grabs during the three days the Tour de France is in England.

The roles include everything from welcoming international visitors at major transport hubs, to supporting National Park rangers and the emergency services.

Leader of Calderdale Council, Councillor Tim Swift, said: “We are making plans for the Tour de France coming to Calderdale and this is an opportunity for residents to become involved.

“There was a fantastic response from the residents of Calderdale in registering to become tour makers. Becoming a Tour Maker is a chance to show internationally the wonderful community spirit of the region.”

The Grand Départ of the Tour de France takes place in Yorkshire on the weekend of July 5 and 6.
