Nursing Home Offers Track-Side View Of Tour De Yorkshire

A Scarborough nursing home is inviting people to join them for a track-side view of this Saturday’s Tour de Yorkshire and is lighting up to celebrate the occasion!

The riders will pass Saint Cecilia’s Nursing Home on Filey Road twice on Saturday and the home is offering tea, coffee and cake to anyone who would like to join them in their garden to watch – in return for a donation to its residents’ fund.

The home has put up flags, bunting and decorated bikes and has even changed its evening illumination lights to yellow and blue to match the Tour de Yorkshire colours.

The Tour is due to pass the home twice, once as it heads out of Scarborough and along Filey Road towards Filey and then when it returns down Queen Margaret’s Road.

Managing Director Mike Padgham said: “We’re really looking forward to Saturday and the Tour de Yorkshire.

“As the home is in the perfect position to see the riders pass twice, we thought it would be an ideal opportunity to invite the local community in to our gardens to enjoy the race and have some refreshments with us, in aid of our residents’ fund, which pays for little extras for our residents.

“The Tour de Yorkshire is a wonderful thing for Scarborough and we are just delighted to be able to join in the spirit of the race, show our support and play our small part in the day!”

The riders are expected to arrive in Scarborough just before 4.30pm on Saturday
