This evening, I'm off to the place I once called home; well the Wirral is close to Liverpool. I will be spending some quality time with my best friend and our other pals, Eat and Drink. But as always, I will look forward to coming back to my now, home town, where I can understand the lingo! I've been away from Scouseland for far too long, the accent has changed
It’s been a fairly quiet week this week, with two great reviews, one with Jackie at The Podger and one with Tony From TC First Aid Training, both great people with great jobs, I suppose if you have too many beers, it’s always good to know First Aid #notcondoning.
I also met with a guy called Tony Sylvester who’s new to Garforth moving from Middlesbrough, he’s started his own business and specialist in creative ideas, Graphics, Branding & Website design, SEO and online marketing communications. HTML/CSS/PHP/XHTML. Need a creative? Get in touch.

Garforth Hour – has grown a lot since November, as more local businesses hear about it, more connections are made. Garforth in Bloom alone have had several new sponsors which I’m really chuffed about, we need you to support the great things. Being on Garforth Hour every Tuesday evening shows you the great things that are local, and it such a short time 1 hour from 8pm. You can see, even as a local resident what’s going on in Garforth and businesses on our doorstep, see who's joining in the networking and having great interaction and banter. Our next Live night is at The Bird in Hand on Tuesday 30th June at 8pm. Don’t worry, you’re not standing about tweeting for a few hours, you actually get to meet the people you've been tweeting with - So if you're a local business, please register for your free attendance to this great night.
Word on the Street
Do you know you can apply for temporary closure of your Street for free, through Leeds City Council? Organise it with your neighbours, it’s here to bring back to good old days of allowing your children to play safely on the Street you live... and, you get to talk and meet the neighbours you might not know. Bring back the times when your children knew everybody on the Street and you knew who the helpful neighbour were up the Road! - We've applied in our Street

Garforth in Bloom Fair is on tomorrow, make sure you support the good of our town, spend a pound or 2 and half an hour of your time to the volunteers who keep our town pretty all year round. You can also find out how you can help, whether it’s physically donating some of your time or donating as little as £5 a year to be a member – every little helps
This week I have been walking round Garforth; doing some fun marketing (did I say it’s been quiet this week!) Have you seen them? Have you spotted them? They're on our Streets and in places where people will see whilst perhaps waiting around or walking by, if you see one, take a photo and send it to me of you, putting it back! ..... Just a few Cluesess #keithlemon
If you're wanting to take your children somewhere local, think of Garforth Golf Range, they do some great deals. My Son and Brother go and have a great time thwacking the balls down the green, undercover too if the weather turns rubbish this weekend!!! How dare it.
If you want to hold conversations with people or find out about things locally, join Street Life, it’s quite good. You can talk to local people and find out about things you may not know. It’s there to encourage people to make connections in their community.
I will be at the Gala this month on Sunday 28th June – you really must come and find my stall and say hello.
This week we've had 23,046 hits to the website, it’s growing each week. You can help by telling friends and family to use The Main Deal first, for shopping. – keep it local and support our town
My name is Christine Thom, I came to live in Garforth 18 years ago; you may have seen me around ?
