Local secondary and primary schools took centre stage ahead of The Women’s Tour cycle race after taking part in a successful art banner project.

A dozen schools from Haverhill, Clare and surrounding villages took part in the ‘Adopt a Team’ project to celebrate the prestigious race starting in the town on Saturday.

And pupils and staff from each school were given the chance to showcase their artwork on the main Women’s Tour stage which had been erected on Haverhill Market Square for the occasion.
