Paralympic lantern to visit Driffield showfield

THE Paralympic Lantern is set to visit Driffield as part of a tour across the East Riding.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council launched the tour of the Paralympic Lantern at a community event in Stamford Bridge on September 4.

The next stop on the tour will be the Harvest Food Festival at the Driffield Showground on Saturday, September 8.

From 9.30am to 2pm, the Paralympic Lantern will be on display, giving local residents and visitors to the area a chance to see this poignant symbol of the Paralympic values of courage, determination, inspiration and equality.

The Driffield Showground’s Harvest Food Festival is a new venture that has been joint-funded by the Coast, Wolds, Wetlands & Waterways LEADER programme. Entry is free.
