Plumtree wins the Tour of Britain 2018!
Plumtree is one of Nottinghamshire's five best dressed towns and villages from September’s Tour of Britain.
To mark the achievement, there are plans for the winning villages to be presented with a special Tour of Britain plaque. Chairman of Plumtree Parish Council, Councillor Mike Bylina, said:
"We are delighted at the fact that the efforts of the council and local residents had been rewarded. It had been a wonderful initiative that saw lots of people in the village involved, showing a superb community feeling and making a great effort to ensure Plumtree played its part in expressing the thrill of having the race pass through."

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.
