He will ride one classic French mountain climb each day, starting at 9:30a.m. (2:30p.m. on Tuesday 11th). Total distance 170 km, climbing 8581 metres.
Spectators will be welcome on his drive (suitably distanced!) and refreshments will be available.

Events in our Churches
“Chance Changing Lives” – a story of help for homeless and disadvantaged people
Those who are involved in projects like the Sandbach Foodbank and Lifeline are well aware of poverty and other difficulties locally.
We may not be so aware of how things are in Crewe, which is quite close to home. Over the past 3 years the charity “Chance Changing Lives” has been working to help tackle poverty and deprivation in Crewe, and the Sandbach Justice and Peace Group has arranged for them to talk about their work. All are welcome at this meeting – to join us please email email@example.com and you will be sent the Zoom link. Please see the poster below.

We have decided that the knitted Angels should make an appearance again this year.
To this end please click here for a revised pattern which Norma has kindly done, to help the process along (opens in a new window).
More details on the collection, labelling and distribution will be issued closer to the time, but for now could you all please ensure your knitting groups and keen individuals, or anyone you might know who would like to join in gets knitting please.
