With the OVO Energy Women’s Tour set to return to Suffolk next week for its fifth visit to the county, local communities are gearing up ready for the start of the race.
To celebrate the Grand Depart of this year’s OVO Energy Women’s Tour, a special festival will take place in Beccles.
This year’s OVO Energy Women’s Tour Grand Depart in Suffolk will take place between Beccles and Stowmarket, marking the first time that both market towns will host Britain’s leading women’s procycling race.
Organisations supporting health and wellbeing in the Beccles area are invited to attend a free event to showcase their services and find out more about working together to support vulnerable and isolated people.
Following the success of similar intergenerational events held in East Suffolk, older residents from the Beccles area are invited to an event run by local young people.
Representatives from Waveney District Council, Beccles Town Council, the Beccles Fenland Charity Trust, Waveney Norse, Broadsbeat and other local organisations have celebrated the official ‘hand over’ of Beccles Quay.
Beccles residents from across the generations were brought together last week at a special event hosted by local students.
Following the success of a pilot event last year, older residents from the Beccles area are once again invited to an event run by local young people.
Between Monday 18 June and Sunday 24 June, Beccles Library, including our Customer Service desk, will be closed for refurbishment and improvements.
Beccles residents are invited to find out more about the broad range of support services, clubs and activities available to them in the local area.
