Local MP joins Hatfield in welcoming Lady Godiva
Grant Shapps was delighted on Friday to join Hatfield residents in welcoming Lady Godiva, powered by a team of cyclists to our own Birchwood Leisure Centre, as part of Britain’s ‘Cultural Olympiad’. The Lady was en route to her final destination in London having travelled 125 miles through Northampton, Milton Keynes and Luton before coming to a final stop in Walthamstow, where she’ll represent the Arts from the West Midlands region at the Olympic Games. She’ll then take a well earned rest until September before being ‘reawakened’ to take part in London’s South Bank Festival.
Grant Shapps said: ‘Hatfield did a sterling job of welcoming Lady Godiva and her team of cyclists, who made quite an entrance! Congratulations to everyone involved not least those that put two and a half years of hard work into putting her together.’
