Pennine Events were appointed to assist Pendle Council with the lead up to the Tour of Britain Stage 2 Ribble Valley and Pendle on the 7th September 2015. We soon realised that we could not manage without them on the actual day of the event and appointed them for this too. We could not have managed without their advice, encouragement and expertise throughout the lead up. 

They were always available to talk things through by e-mail and to come and see us to iron out any problems we might have. Their expertise with the road closures and advice on any hot spots along the route was invaluable. There was a good rapport between the Pendle Council team and Pennine Events, the group gelled well and we all agreed that we enjoyed the experience (once the stress was over!). Hosting the Tour of Britain in Pendle was a new experience for Pendle Council  and having Pennine Events at our side to help us through was a pleasure and gave us the confidence we needed to ensure the day went well.

It has in fact been universally hailed as a huge success.  

As part of the process a Senior Councillor/Officer Working Group was established with Pennine Events taking part .

The counciilors included the Leader and Deputy Leader.All were very impressed by Pennine Events.

The Event Management Plan and Command,Control & Communications (C3) Plan produced by Pennine Events were excellent,comprehensive documents.
