Hexham's cycling jersey champions!

Congratulations to our local winners of Northumberland County Council’s competition to design a Northumberland-themed cycling jersey for the upcoming Tour of Britain cycle race. 

It is fantastic to see some Hexham constituency schools featured in the list of winners- Broomhaugh C of E First School, Wylam First School, Hexham Middle School and Prudhoe Community High School all feature in the winners’ list. 

A special congratulations have to go to Broomhaugh First School Year 4 pupil Adam Symes, who’s Hadrian’s Wall under the stars design was named as the winner in the Reception to Year 4 category.

The Tour of Britain will be visiting Northumberland in September, starting in Berwick, heading along the Northumberland coast, before traveling into North Tyneside and finishing on Grey Street in Newcastle city centre. The race will be broadcast to 166 countries, and really will be an incredible opportunity to showcase our wonderful region.
