Schools from Haverhill, Clare, Stoke by Clare and Wickhambrook take centre stage with Women's Tour art project
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.
David Roach, a Haverhill town, district and county councillor, said the project was a great way of encouraging young people into sport.
Cllr Jo Rayner, Cabinet Member for Leisure at West Suffolk Council, added: “It is fantastic to see so many children from across the town and surrounding area getting involved in the Women’s Tour by adopting a team to cheer on.”
The schools that took part in the project were Burton End Primary Academy, Castle Manor Academy, Clements Primary Academy, Coupals Primary Academy, Haverhill Community Sixth Form, Place Farm Primary Academy, Samuel Ward Academy, Stoke College, Stour Valley Community School, Westfield Primary Academy and Wickhambrook Primary Academy.
