I have received the information below from Leeds Modernians:

“The time is drawing near for the Annual Cookridge Scarecrow Festival and we have already started the planning. However you may have heard that the Tour de Yorkshire is scheduled for the Sunday of 5th May which would clash with the Scarecrow Festival. After considering the possibilities we felt that it was in the best interests of the Cookridge Community to switch the date for the Scarecrow Festival to the Spring Bank Holiday 26th and 27th May. This way people can get the best from both the Tour and the Festival.

We will be sending out promotional details about the FestivalĀ in the near future and hope that you will be able to join in again with this fantastic Cookridge Festival,

Meetings have taken place between Leeds Modernians and the Tour de Yorkshire organisers about how best theĀ  club can support the Tour as the route goes past the club. Part of this is a roadshow to take place at Leeds Modernians on 31st January starting at about 7.00pm where information about the Tour will be available.

Contact details for information about Leeds Modernians and the two events are e
