The Tour of Britain is coming to Plumtree
Hedges are being cut, posters displayed and we will be having a litter pick in the week beginning September 3rd. On the day itself, the Burnside Hall will be open from 9:00 with ladies from Plumtree WI serving refreshments. The church will also be open and the bells will be rung from 10:30 to encourage the riders as they whizz through the village.
Roads will be closed from about 15 minutes before the riders appear until after the last rider has passed. Parking restrictions will be in force on the route itself; cars will be removed if they are still on the route an hour before the race.

Plumtree is a small village with a population of around 200, located 5 miles (8 km) south-east of Nottingham, just off the A606 between Tollerton and Keyworth. Its population has remained fairly constant during its transition from an agricultural village to a residential one.
It features a thriving church dedicated to St Mary; a popular village hall; a pub called The Griffin Inn (which is currently closed for refurbishment and will re-open again in 2018); a premier league cricket team; and the award-winning Perkins Bar & Bistro and Carriage Hall.
