Have your say

Peak District cycling festival ‘Eroica Britannia’ has received a boost in the form of sponsorship from Hope Construction Materials.

The company, which operates the country’s largest cement works in Hope Valley and Dowlow Quarry near Buxton, has confirmed its partnership with Eroica Britannia, a three-day cycling and family festival which returns to Bakewell between June 19 and 21, for a second year.

Hope Construction Materials joins a growing list of local and national companies, including Buxton Water, Liberty of London and Lush , to sponsor the festival, which is expected to attract more than 50,000 people this year.

Hope’s sponsorship will be reinforced with five special Eroica Britannia-branded cement lorries which will promote the event throughout the UK as they travel to customers.

Industrial Director Ashley Bryan said: “We are passionate about supporting the communities around our operations, and about boosting the Peak District economy.”

Nick Cotton from Eroica Britannia said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to partner with Hope Construction Materials and welcome them on board as a key event sponsor for 2015.”
