Pay Day Weekend for some........
Phew….. Yes I’ve been counting the days I can go and buy decent biscuits for my cup of tea rather than looking at crumbs and there is only so many jacket potatoes you have with leftover from the freezer! It also means, January is nearly at an end, here’s to a happy, February when we can look forward to reminding our loved ones, how much we do love them. Not many like Valentine’s Day, but I’m one of those people who like to celebrate everything; it’s about having fun with the good things – buy those chocolates, cakes, treats and have a go and cooking a nice meal. Time together is so important and if Valentine’s Day is one of those times to give us it, grab it with both hands.
We have added new members on this week, 3 lovely ladies from Estetica Permanent Cosmetics, these ladies are 3 individual specialists working out of the salon on Barley Hill Road. Go and see what they have on offer under our, ‘Make me Beautiful’ category https://www.themaindeal.co.uk/make-me-beautiful.html
I had a lovely meeting with Jo at The Station House on Monday; as well as lovely coffee and cake… my meetings can be so good. Jo has a fantastic community idea she wants to organise for July 2020 and we needed to meet up with the Station House Master and the owners of the building so see if we could get their support and permission to pull off, what could be a great event. Fingers crossed, it’s looking like a plan – keep following the blog to find out more as we moved forward with ideas in 2019.

Sad to hear confirmation from the owner that the lovely shop, Sugarcraft supplies will be leaving their premises at the end of February – I shop I know I will miss. Good luck to Susan and her team in whatever they do next. I’m already hearing another business is interested in the property.
If you can help, come to our next meeting on Monday as we will have Clary from Leeds repair Café popping in to answer some questions about and the ways we could run this in our library.
Speaking with the people in the know this week, Garforth Train Station will soon be undergoing some works to increase the car parking capacity to just under 100 more spaces, works will start at the end of April 2019 for a course of 4- 6 months and will not impact the train station platform. There is more works schedule for lighting, access and CCTV but this is still needs final approval. In the meantime, please be assured the rumours about a larger station being built and one shut down, is definitely not something that is happening
A very sad day this week when a poor lady lost her life. As in most small towns there is always lots of speculation about the details of the accident, please do not put anything up on social media to discuss, as it would not be nice for the grieving members of her family or friends but also the driver of the lorry. - Just think about the details we don't know.
I’m off out tomorrow evening to help celebrate our best man’s 50th Birthday; how do I have friend who is 50? Time, please stop.
Until next week…………… Help each other
My name is Christine Thom, I came to live in Garforth nearly 22 years ago; you may have seen me around ?
