Its Valentines weekend, what do you have for your loved one?
Sometimes a card is all that’s needed. Adore have some unique ones as do The Flower House, and the charity shops, but if like me, you expect Chocolates and well, just food, then please do shop at our local shops to get only the best. Heart Shaped bread from Dumouchel or handmade chocolates, check them out, it’s not too late http://www.dumouchel.co.uk/ - Firths Butchers are offering a 3 course meal this week especially for tomorrow night – Move over M&S...
Garforth Hour News...
It was also said by Karl from Your Move Estate Agents this week that for every house that was put on the Market with him over this next week, he would donate £10 out of his own pocket to a good cause in our community – so think selling locally too – 70 houses should get a good payout! Join us every Tuesday night between 8-9pm it's doing wonders for local businesses.
Also, A Christmas committee has been put together with local Councillors and Garforth & District Lions and us, the general public to discuss future plans for this year’s Christmas Lights event; can we get a Grotto and make more of a Christmas weekend in Garforth Main Street? I’m looking forward to being a voice in this committee whilst promoting the ideas
Last night I attended a meeting at Garforth Academy about, ‘How can Garforth Arts Festival help the people in the community?’ This was an open space meeting which is like no other I have ever been too, there are several discussions throughout the night, 3 sessions of 5 discussion areas and you can go between whichever discussion you think is worthwhile your attention or input; unless you have committed yourself to hold that discussion; of course I had one!
The little group sessions were brilliant, the people in the community who attended were so inspiring about what they wanted to achieve within our community leading up to the Garforth Arts Festival as well as general things we should ALL be doing to help make our town better for all. - #watchthisspace
And last of all – I did mention in my Shout Out last week that, The Good Food Store does great sandwiches!
My name is Christine Thom, I came to live in Garforth nearly 22 years ago; you may have seen me around ?
