A national campaign to boost ‘market’ shopping is coming to Thirsk today.
‘Love Your Local Market’ initiative will see a number of special events including music and dance acts in the town.
Local market traders and independent retailers have rallied to support the initiative contributing hundreds of pounds worth of prizes for treasure trails to be held at the market.
The trails will encourage people to explore the stalls and shops in the town centre by following a series of clues to complete the mystery phrase needed to be entered into the prize draw. There is a trail for youngsters and a slightly more challenging trail for everyone else, say Hamleton District Council.
Prizes on offer in Thirsk are a family ticket to the World of James Herriot as well as prizes and vouchers from Johnsons the Butchers, Toys Around the Corner, The Little 3, Parker Books and Hadfield Pets.
A full list of prizes and more details about the events can be found at www.hambleton.gov.uk/LYLM2013
The council is also running a photography competition asking local photographers to submit pictures of their market and the high streets. Sponsored by J.D. Photography in Thirsk a prize of 1000 prints is on offer to the winning photographer. More details can be found at www.hambleton.gov.uk/photocomp. Photographs must be submitted by May 29.
