“It’s important that we get together to show out support for our county. Yorkshire is a very special place and we should celebrate that.”

The Mayor of Harrogate, Coun Jim Clark

“ We’ve got Yorkshire very much on the map as a brand thanks to the Tour de France. We’ve got an awful lot going for us and we should celebrate that.”

“People need to be reminded of God’s own county. Others, apparently, lay claim to it. I don’t know how they can. Clearly there’s nowhere quite like it.”

The Mayor of Knaresborough, Coun Tony Handley,

“There’s something to celebrate about being in Yorkshire, with Knaresborough the best place in it. We’ll be flying the Yorkshire flag for the first time this year.”

The Mayor of Wetherby, Coun Harry Chapman

“It’s the Tour de France effect. Everybody is talking about Yorkshire in the country, in Europe even. It’s helped commerce, and left everyone feeling good.”
