Leanne Broadhead writes: "My grandmother, in Royston in Barnsley, is 78 years old. She has three children, five grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren!

"She has really got into the spirit of the Tour de Yorkshire by decorating the outside of her house ready for the big day. This includes loads of bunting that she obtained from the local council and she has shared this out with her neighbours as well.
