Important information about the Tour de Yorkshire, 5 May 2018
On Saturday 5 May 2018 riders in the Tour de Yorkshire will compete in the third stage of
the men’s race. With a world class field of cyclists and live international TV coverage, it
promises to be an exciting event and a great opportunity to showcase our beautiful county.
We are writing to all Parish Councils along the route to ask for your support with delivering
some important messages to help make the event a success.

Stage 3: Saturday 5 May – Richmond to Scarborough, 184km (114.3 miles)
The riders will start in Richmond’s market place at 13:10 and finish on the now-legendary
Scarborough North Bay sea front just after 17:30
We want to make the Tour de Yorkshire an enjoyable event; to help us do this there are a
number of safety messages that we would appreciate your help with sharing and publicising
where possible, these are as follows:
To help ensure the safety of the race and provide maximum opportunities for spectators to
watch the race we encourage as many people as possible to leave their cars at home.
For those who need to drive they should plan ahead, know the route they can take and
where they can park responsibly to walk or cycle to their chosen spot to watch the race.
To ensure the safety of the race, spectators and residents, parking on the race route is
Spectators are advised to avoid standing on sections of the route that are narrow, have no
verge or have walls with a drop behind them. They should keep to footpaths and protect dry
stone walls by not climbing, standing or sitting on them. The use of drones for photography
is strictly prohibited.
Dogs should be kept on a short lead and the race route kept clear until the last riders and the
end of race vehicle have passed.
The majority of the route will be operating under rolling road closures, which will typically last
up to one hour; however, there are some locations on the route which will be subject to
longer closures. These closures are to ensure the safety of riders, support teams and
spectators, staff and volunteers. Access for emergency services will be maintained at all
times and we aim to return everything to normal as soon as possible on the day of the race.
An end of race vehicle will follow the race, once this has passed rolling road closures are
lifted. Fixed road closures at starts, finishes and key climbs will remain in place until it is
deemed safe to reopen the road.

Road closure information and race timings are available at and Alternatively the County Council Customer Service Centre on
01609 780780 can be contacted for more information
Over the race weekend traffic and travel information will be available on BBC local radio, and Twitter @northyorkscc. If your parish council has a twitter and/or
facebook account, retweeting and sharing information on @northyorkscc would be greatly
Whilst we realise that the Tour de Yorkshire may inconvenience some residents, especially
those close to the route, this is a great opportunity to show the world our fantastic local area
and we appreciate your help in sharing our messages about making the event safe and
Yours faithfully

Then Join The Big Community Collective Switch 2018
We’re always being advised to look for the best energy deals out there, but changing suppliers can
mean hassle and uncertainty. This is why Scarborough Borough Council is promoting the Big
Community Switch Scheme.
What is the Big Community Switch Scheme?
The scheme harnesses the combined purchasing power of the community to gain the best deal out
there from energy suppliers. The suppliers then bid to win the business by giving the best possible
deal; the best offering wins the business. After seeing the offer it is up to you whether you would
like to switch, or not.
If you chose to switch the winning supplier will take care of the entire switching process for you and
notify your current supplier that you are switching – easy!
Why join the council in the big switch?
Using the council is an easy and safe way to switch suppliers and save money. All you have to do is
register and provide a copy of your latest energy bill then the rest will be done for you.
Thousands of households have already switched using this method and the most recent auction
resulted in very competative tariffs, with the average household saving £221.07.
There is no obligation to switch but why not see if you can make some savings.
How to take part
Registration for the Big Community Switch opens on Tuesday, 3 April 2018 and closes on Monday, 21
May 2018. To register simply:
or visit
or phone - 017823 232323 between 9am-5pm Monday to Friday,
or in person by visiting your local Customer First Contact Centre
Don’t forget registration closes on the 21 May 2018 – don’t miss out!

Community Defibrillators


Filey Town Council has worked in partnership to provide two community defibrillators, one for the town centre which is housed on the former HSBC Bank by kind permission of Co-op FuneralCare Services and one on the seafront which is housed on the wall of the H M Coastguard building by kind permission of H M Coastguard. 

Sponsorship funding for the defibrillators has been provided  by H M Coastguard, Co-op FuneralCare Services, the former Filey & District Safety Committee, Filey Rotary Club and the Town Council’s Emergency Planning Group.

The defibrillators are very easy to use and can be used by anyone, if required just dial 999 and the Ambulance Service will provide a code to access the defibrillator and once the device is switched on it will talk you through how to use it and where to place the pads. The device will analyse a persons heart rhythm and will only  provide an electric shock if required.

 Filey Town Council wishes to thank all the above sponsors for their valuable contributions towards the provision of this vital community lifesaving equipment.

Other defibrillators in the town are located at Filey Golf Club, Tesco, Filey Surgery, My Dentist, The Evron Centre, and Filey Junior School.
