Celebrating Le Tour De France in Yorkshire!

Yorkshire MKM’s are welcoming the visiting Tour De France with a variety of branch activities.


There’s a chance to win a Voodoo Hoodoo bike worth £500 from one of our Yorkshire branches (see below for participating branches) in our stamp card competition! For a chance to win - be sure to collect a card in branch and get stamped every time you spend over £25– there are extra freebies along the way!


MKM Anlaby have also been hosting French-themed breakfast morning to get in to the spirit and our Sheffield North branch became involved with a community art project!


Mark Jackman from the branch spoke about MKM’s involvement with the contemporary bike sculpture named ‘Up-Cycle’: “We collaborated with Jewel Construction to get the groundworks ready, where H. Askey Haulage then moved the sculpture from Worrall Memorial Hall to the village center.  The installation was a very smooth operation.  It was lovely, crowds of local people watching in and a big cheer when the final nut was tightened!”


David Beach (also from MKM Sheffield North) attended the launch and handed out MKM merchandise: “Nick Clegg visited on 27th June to officially unveil the sculpture, it really has been a joint community

effort and wonderful to be a part of!”
