The deadline is approaching for applications to volunteer at the Tour de France when it comes to Essex.

People can apply to be a ‘Tour Maker’ for stage three of the race on July 7 and help with stewarding.

Epping Forest District Council’s Leader Councillor Chris Whitbread said: “This is a great opportunity for Epping Forest residents to get involved in a once in a life time opportunity to see the Tour de France come to life in our High Streets.

“I would encourage everyone to get involved.”
