A TEAM of about 70 volunteer guides has been assembled by Ilkley Soroptimists to provide a warm welcome to Ilkley this weekend.

The guides, in their bright pink high-visibility jacket, can be spotted at Ilkley Station and along The Grove as crowds descend on the town for the Tour de France.

Many of the guides have foreign languages skills and will be very happy to help any visitors needing help with translations.
