As the Tour of Britain swept the nation this summer, Specsavers in Hucknall got caught up in the cycle-mania and waved on the athletes as they passed through the town.

Stage four of the event on Wednesday 6 September saw competitors cycle from Mansfield to Newark-on-Trent, via Hucknall.

Support from local community

Staff from the High Street store showed their support by turning the store yellow: the store was decorated with yellow balloons and yellow posters in the shop windows, team members dressed up in yellow outfits, and they offered celebratory yellow-themed cupcakes to visitors.

A word from the store director

‘It was a really exciting day,’ said store director, Janet Archer. ‘The team dazzled in their yellow costumes and we had a lot of fun cheering on the cyclists as they came past – hopefully our customers also enjoyed the store’s transformation!’
