YEF flies its colours with community banner

23 July 2014

2014-07-11 16.26.12The York Environment Forum was proud to join with the many community and other groups in the city to make its own banner for the City of York Council’s Dress to Impress initiative for the Grand Depart of the Tour de France.

The banner project was organised by YEF’s treasurer Penny Bainbridge with help from members Ron Healy, Adrian Lovett and Bootham School teacher Harriet Ennis and the pupils from BEAST, the school’s environmental group, working with a community artist using the materials provided by the council for the community banners.

The colourful banners were displayed on York’s bar walls, adding a vibrant and attractive element to the Tour de France street decorations and demonstrating the huge range of voluntary groups and organisations that are active in the city.

Our banner was hung in a prominent position on the archway through the walls from Lendal Bridge leading to York Station, and was next to a Greenpeace banner, which we thoroughly approved of!

York Environment Forum would like to thank City of York Council for this great initiative and for taking such care to present the banners to the public. The banners have been taken down now, but will be available for public viewing an another location – check our Facebook page for an update on this.
