Kate and the team have been running Freshly Made for a few years now and have a great reputation for the yummiest of breakfasts, sandwiches, pies and cakes.
But,they do more than you think at Freshly Made , it's not just about breakfast
Each Monday during term time, Freshly Made provide the NET group based at Halliday Court with a home-cooked hot meal made up of a main course and a dessert. Halliday Court is one of 14 lunch clubs within the Garforth and surrounding areas, whose aim is to combat social isolation by providing older people with the opportunity to meet people, make new friends and join in activities.
The super cook who creates the Monday meals is called Keith. Keith has recently retired and was looking for a little role which utilised his culinary skills. So when Freshly Made were approached by Ann and Pat at Halliday Court they had just the person for the job. Keith enjoys the camaraderie of working in a team and the staff learn cooking tips from Keith and love the banter in the kitchen when he is around!
In addition to Monday meals, Freshly Made also provide regular buffets for working lunches to a number of local businesses.
Owner Kate, has a spent the last decade working for charities, supporting disadvantaged young people in to work and training. As a new employer, Kate was keen to offer work placements at Freshly Made.
They have since supported two young people, the first on a six month placement via the Government Talent Match programme, who had language and learning barriers. More recently they provided a work experience placement for a 16 year old with complex learning disabilities. Following the success of the first placement, Freshly Made have been chosen by Talent Match to support more young people in the coming few months.
Talent Match is targeting young people who are furthest from the jobs market, including those who are completely outside of the benefits, work and training system and facing severe barriers to gaining the skills they need to get into work.
So next time you pop in Monday to Sunday in the cafe, just think you buying from the cafe allows Kate and the team to do all these wonderful things in our community

Charlotte Martin has been bringing us fun, love and great exercise for 6 years now and I know only too well, as I have being going most of these 6 years! Zumba is still taught in Garforth on a Monday and Tuesday
Monday at Garforth Academy - 6.00pm
Tuesday at St. Benedict's Church Hall
at 10.00am and then 11.15am for Zumba Gold
Just in case you don't know what Zumba is;
Zumba is the Latin-inspired, easy to follow, calorie-burning, dance fitness-party. Feel the music and let loose. Zumba Gold tends to be for the older lady and GENT who still wants to have fun exercising but a lower impact, I've been to this class a few times and found it just as good.
Moving on wards and upwards, Charlotte has now opened her fabulous new studios, Cool Buzz just 8 minutes from Garforth, you just go over the bridge as you come into Castleford and turn left and the Studios are just on the left with ample parking at the rear of the building.
See for yourself how fabulous they are:
Charlotte is now able to offer so much more, as well as Zumba you can now do TapFit which is going down a storm and something more relaxing with Veraflow
Tapfit is a high energy cardio class, that really burns those calories and tones the muscles (esp the legs and bum!)
It's Fun, Fabulous and For You!
What do people say about Veraflow?
"I can't believe how relaxed I feel after class"
" My muscles feel so much looser and freer"
" Only a few classes in and I can feel the difference in my ability to balance"
Why not try it for yourself? Veraflow means True Flow in Italian and we all could do to find our True Flow.
Here is the timetable for Cool Buzz Studios
TAPfit - 6:30pm
Zumba Fitness 9:30am - New Zumba Classes
Zumba Fitness 7pm
Zumba Fitness 10am
Zumba Gold 11:15am
Zumba Fitness 6:15pm
You can also hire the studio for, children's parties, private dance lessons, wedding dances, photo shoots, dance parties or a mini disco, balloon modelling and have a magician.

Where? I here you say, Where is this cafe? Why has it never stuck in my head as I drive past it?
STOP and look, Freshly Made is situated on Aberford Road, next to 'the chippy' where the old post office used to be, 'Oh, I know.............' I hear you say, but how many times have you driven past it, when you could have been going into it? Kate and the team have been here a couple of years now and have done wonders with the cafe. The inside is nice and clean and bigger than you think. The team open the cafe 7 days a week and the breakfasts are rather scrummy. You can also pop in for a lunch time sandwich or something hot as they have some fabulous weekly offers, homemade pies and puddings etc. As you can see, you can also use them for catering for a meeting too.
Parking is right outside the door, dogs are welcome and it's a good place to stop if you've been on a big bike ride.
Keep up to date with Freshly Made by following them on Social media; just so you don't miss out on that breakfast offer, open Saturday and Sunday mornings

Another great 12 months for Cielo since our last shout out... with more great coffee shops opening and being part of new projects, Ooo and another little baby Castle - adding to their business and family.
Cielo (CEE-EL-O) was born over 10 years ago, born out of heart, they see community as a verb, not just a noun, Nick and Linda wanted to create a great, warm and friendly place for us, the local community to visit. A place to meet new and old friends, create a place to build a better community cohesion and reduce loneliness. Cielo has grown as a social enterprise in more ways than one, not only expanded in premises but their roasting side of the business is growing too, giving us the best speciality coffee that’s ethically sourced, roasted to order and the profits given away – and it is the best, my own coffee pot makes much better sounds when it’s got Cielo coffee in it! You can buy it in 1kg bags in the cafe.....
Cielo work closely with our own local community as well as working with poorer parts of the world. Their profits are given to help projects such as a Club foot in Ethiopia, so every time you order a purchase a bag of coffee, profits from this go right there.
Last year Cielo revisited their lunch time offerings and a new menu was born, creating simple but tasty food, such as the classic BLT as well as speciality sandwiches; Salted Beef Brisket and Gorgonzola with a pickle and walnut glaze and spring onion.... look out for them - keep a check on their A Board outside too, they have some fabulous adverts on here, telling you what's going on inside.
They also have events on such as Pipsqueaks - A free story and songs time for under 5's
They have some half term crafts on the 16th February at 10.30-12.30 on the 16th February upstairs #crafts and a sand art table, prices from £1
You can order online and it can be delivered to your door - See, you can #shoplocal and support great things at the same time. - Roasting takes place every Tuesday and Friday in Garforth; I do mean the beans!
BUY HERE http://www.cielouk.com/coffee/
Cielo are also part of red letter day type of activities which you can purchase in Boots and Debenhams, read the small print, as the coffee offering is from Cielo
Follow them on all social media and keep up to date with all what goes on
Or simply phone 0113 286 3534
