The Grand Depart: Will You Be Watching?

05th July 2014

The Tour De France will be making its way through Yorkshire this weekend (today, July 5 and tomorrow, July 6), winding its way around the beautiful country roads in and around Holmfirth – home to the Distinctive Chesterfields office. Here in the office and showroom we’re very excited for the weekend’s festivities, which include a French style farm outside St George’s Square, and woven willow sculptures in and around Huddersfield.

Anyone visiting the area, or local residents looking to make the most of a bit of alfresco fun, will definitely want to check out the Kirklees Council website for all the details they’ll need ahead of the weekend.

There’s some great spots to watch the race in the district, with big crowds expected at Holme Moss, Ainley Top, and on the Huddersfield ring road. Businesses in the area are also getting into the swing of things, offering cut price meals and getting dressed up in the team’s jerseys.

Don’t forget: Our Honley-based showroom will be open today (Saturday) from 10am to 3pm – book your appointment here on our website, or turn up on the day for a browse.
