HAVING had two letters printed in the past 12 months or so criticising City of York Council, I felt should give credit where it is deserved.

On Sunday the organisation and expertise that went into the wonderful Tour de France Grand Départ from York was second to none. It was enjoyed by many thousands of people and the council’s efforts were fantastic.

I really do hope they have learned the very simple lesson, that going with what the majority of voters want is the only way to travel.
