Competition winner Calum ready for beach
For he could see shoppers strolling around wearing his wonderful whale design.
Calum, of Knowles Lane, Gomersal, has been named the winner of a T-shirt design competition.
Event organisers asked children aged 12 and under to create a special image inspired by the giant 50ft whale theatre that will be the centrepiece of the free outdoor event.
And the eight-year-old’s drawing wowed the judges – Coun Masood Ahmed, Adrian Ashpool from AB Print Group and Reporter news editor Lindsay Pantry.
The T-shirts will be sold from a surf shack in Foundry Street, with the proceeds going to charity.
Longcauseway Gardens will host the whale theatre, a Noah’s Ark inflatable for toddlers and Kirklees Active Leisure’s muscle beach.
Blackpool donkey rides will set off from outside Longcauseway Church.
Market Place will be taken over by a giant beach sponsored by Ponderosa Rural Therapeutic Centre as well as beach huts, the Real Radio roadshow and face painters.
The beach opens at 10am, with activities 10.30am-4pm.
The beach is open on Sunday and Monday, 11am-4pm.
