HONLEY DOES t’TOUR – HBA ART AWARD WINNERS
As part of the Tour de France Honley village celebrations, the Honley Business
Association ran a competition to decorate village shop windows with pieces of artwork
designed by local children’s groups.
The winners of the HBA Community Art Award were the 6th Holme Valley Scout Group
Atlas Cubs. The competition was judged by Jason McCartney MP, who was most
impressed with all the entries, and the winning artwork appeared in the My Children’s
Wardrobe shop window.
Liz Wood, Chairman of the Honley Business Association said “It was wonderful to see
local children taking the Tour de France to their hearts. Their artwork contributions made
for a cheerful display around our village and formed an important part of our highly
successful and enjoyable village celebrations.”
They received the HBA Community Art Award
trophy and goodie bags (kindly donated by Bill O’Brien of System Vision Ltd).
Such was the success of the competition, Honley Business Association intend the
Community Art Award to become an annual event.
