Matthew Burton from the television programme “Educating Yorkshire” opened the latest development from Mencap in Kirklees on 18 June. This is a shop at the junction of Church Street and Daisy Hill in Dewsbury (2 Church Street, WF13 1LB). This venture which is funded by KMC Community Partnerships will initially be open Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm, but we hope to extend these hours later. The event was well attended by local councillors and people who were interested in using the service in the future. For further information, please contact us by email or telephone 01924 452953 (Head Office 01484 340811) or call in at ‘The Shop’.
