I WOULD like to congratulate Wirral Council on its excellent organisation last Wednesday when the Tour of Britain visited us.

Some people may not realise the amount of work involved.

Every home (including ours) which was affected by the cycleracing was notified individually about the changes to bin emptying and the re-organisation of buses must have been hard work.

However, due to a rolling closure of streets, traffic interruption was kept to a minimum.

But it was well worth it.

The all-day coverage of the race on ITV 4 was very food and the views from the helicopter coverage must have attracted some very welcome publicity to our lovely Wirral peninsula.
