Cepac works in tandem with Rawcliffe community to celebrate Tour de Yorkshire

The first stage of the Tour de Yorkshire travelled through Rawcliffe on Thursday (3 May), where the UK’s leading independent corrugated packaging producer has one of its four plants.

The race was greeted by dozens of colourful corrugated bicycles created at Cepac’s Rawcliffe site and decorated by pupils from Rawcliffe Bridge Primary School and mounted on to frames designed and made by carpentry & joinery students from the nearby Goole College.

Cepac also worked with the Parish Council to sponsor a large outdoor screen on the village green so locals could watch the race as it continued on to Doncaster.

 Richard Moore, General Manager at Cepac Rawcliffe, said: “We are proud to have been able to work with the community to help locals enjoy the first stage of the Tour de Yorkshire right in the heart of Rawcliffe.”

“This is the third year that the Tour de Yorkshire has taken place, building on the success of Le Grand Depart in 2014, when the Tour de France commenced in Yorkshire. It’s always great to see so many people join the festivities and take part.”

 Founded in 1999, Cepac has plants at Darlington, Doncaster and Rotherham, in addition to the Rawcliffe plant.
