Sunday is funday for Dewsbury town centre!

ALL the fun of the fair will come to Dewsbury this Sunday to promote Sunday shopping – and parking is FREE all day.
Fairground rides, facepainters, balloon modellers and live entertainment are among the attractions as Dewsbury comes alive on Sunday from 9am to 4pm.
Most of Dewsbury’s bigname retailers will be open, along with many small independent shops.
The Dewsbury Sunday Shopping Family Fun Day has been organised by Sandra Quale, manager at Quality Save, and Tas Marshall, who runs Strange Tales in The Arcade.
Tas is also chairman of the Dewsbury Retail Forum, which meets on the third Thursday of every month in the HSBC Bank building from 5.45pm.
Sandra, meanwhile, has a proud record of trying to promote Dewsbury through her involvement in the Yorkshire Day and DewsburyonSea events.
The latest initiative has been inspired by how busy town centre streets seem to be on a Sunday while the shops are usually quiet.
Sandra believes people visit the car boot market and the edgeoftown retail park without realising many of the shops they pass in between are actually open.
Most of the big chains are Sundayopening regulars but many independent traders stay closed. All that could start to change after this Sunday!
Sandra said: “We hope we’ll increase the number of shoppers in the town centre to give smaller traders a reason to open up on a Sunday again.”
Gymnastics displays, children’s activities and the Dewsbury Market car boot sale will be among Sunday’s attractions.
There will also be special offers in certain stores.
The shops taking part include Peacocks, Quality Save, Boots, Game, Glitz, Argos, Subway, WH Smiths, Wilkinson’s, Bargain Brands, Poundland, Poundworld and the Kirkwood Hospice shop.
Sandra added: “We want to show that Dewsbury is still a friendly town worth visiting, and that we’re open for business on a Sunday.
“No matter what some say, there is a great community here and lots to be proud of. We want to build on that by boosting town centre trade.”
Parking in Dewsbury is free every Sunday.
