The world-record breaking bunting which lined the Cragg Vale route of the Tour de France has been sold.

Fashioned out of curtains, made by residents around the district, the bunting stretched across 10km with around 52,939 flags, and was sold at the Cragg Vale Country Fair last Saturday (August 16).

More than £720 was raised for charity, with proceeds going to the Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team.

Sharon Le Corre, from the Le Tour Cragg group, who organised the world record, said: “We have had loads and loads of really positive comments about how great the bunting looked and how great it was in bring the community together.”

Peter Farnell, chairman of Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team was “delighted” at the amount raised for the team.

“It is wonderful when other people raise money for us and we really appreciate it.

“When the community responds to us, it is wonderful.”
