With less than 100 days to go until this year’s Tour de Yorkshire, the borough
council is supporting the drive by Welcome to Yorkshire to recruit ‘Tour Makers’.
Welcome to Yorkshire is working in partnership with regional police forces to look for a passionate and reliable team of volunteers, known as Tour Makers, which will be part of
the spirit of the race and be the welcoming face of Yorkshire for spectators.
Cllr Andrew Backhouse, Scarborough Borough Council ‘s cabinet member for tourism, leisure and culture, said:“We really want to give local people in every town and village on the route of the Tour de Yorkshire this special opportunity to become a Tour de Yorkshire volunteer.
“The army of Tour Makers chosen for the Tour de France in 2014 and the inaugural Tour de Yorkshire were a massive part of the success story and their role in giving hundreds of thousands of spectators a warm Yorkshire welcome cannot be understated.”
Anyone in the borough interested in becoming a Tour Maker needs to complete a short online survey, which can be found at: www.letour.yorkshire.com/tour-makers
Volunteers will need to attend a police led training session and be available for the race weekend on Friday April 29, Saturday April 30 and Sunday May 1.
The 2016 Tour de Yorkshire will mark the third return for Tour Makers, following the Tour de France in 2014 and the Tour de Yorkshire in 2015.
