Aarsleff Ground Engineering is excited to be sponsoring Beaumond House Hospice’s event ‘Party at the Castle’ as part of the OVO Energy Tour of Britain on the 6th September. This will include 4 hours of live music from The Engine Room rock band and local singer/songwriter Eva from 12pm. There will be refreshments from the Beaumond House team along with children’s crafts and balloons – all situated within the stunning Newark Castle.
Cathy Lowe of Beaumond House Hospice said:
“Beaumond House is delighted and grateful to be a part of the Tour of Britain cycle ride as it comes through Newark as this has got to be one of the biggest events to ever come to Newark. We will be providing refreshments in the Castle Grounds from 12noon and will be collecting donations throughout the afternoon. We hope to see lots of cycle fans as they enjoy the build up to the exciting climax of the race. Thank you to Newark and Sherwood District Council and Aarsleff Ground Engineering for making all of the entertainment possible.”
Nottinghamshire will host an entire stage of the OVO Energy Tour of Britain, the UK’s premier road cycling race, as the event visits Mansfield and Newark-on-Trent for the first time. Aarsleff Ground Engineering’s head office, located in Balderton, sits right next to historic Newark, which will host the finish of this stage. 120 of the world’s top cyclists will race a 175-kilometre stage from Mansfield to Newark-on-Trent. The route will take in Eastwood, Hucknall, Gedling and the grounds of Newstead Abbey and the centre of Southwell.
Mr. Derek Higton, Nottinghamshire County Council’s service director for cultural services, said:
“This is a great coup for Nottinghamshire to host a full stage of the UK’s biggest free-to-attend sporting event for the first time. With a world-wide audience of millions and 1.6m spectators expected over the eight-day race, all eyes will be on Nottinghamshire on September 6.”
