Its the May Bank Holiday and Tour De Yorkshire weekend #CELEBRATETHEGOOD
A busy week in the office, making time to polish my accounts for my Self Assessment; thank goodness I have a great accountant at Business Works who makes life easier.
Augustus Court, Meridian Care Home - Events
I have attended two great events at Augustus Court this week.
Open day to the public - Saturday 23rd April
What a great and fun day this was, the home was busy with lots of people and having to eat beautiful afternoon cakes and tea! Garforth Community Choir were also singing which is always great fun, seeing people joining in, tapping feet and swinging to the music, especially the lovely resident of Augustus Court, Doris... a lovable character of the home who was happy dancing away with her zimmer frame whilst the choir was belting out a few great tunes..
Dorinda’s school of Dance was also performing with many of the young girls who attend the dance school, some were so weenie #verycute they put on a fabulous performance,. I was looking over at the residents watching and you could see a little twinkle in their eye, as though they were reminiscing about their youth Well done girls. #greattalent
Official Open Day – Wednesday 27th April
A very busy afternoon with the staff, residents, their families, the developers, the interior designers and the special guests, Angela Rippon and Leeds Mayor along with Garforth Lions and Garforth in Bloomers, more afternoon tea and cakes #itsahardjob a great pianist playing jazz and lots of members of the HC group and PR team making this a wonderful afternoon.
Augustus Court is officially open
The staff have worked really hard over the last few months putting on great days as well as running the home with new residents in attendance. Go along, pop in and meet the great Team, speak to the lovely Mary Usher, the Care Homes Team Manager or phone and ask for details. Telephone 0333 999 8727
There are lots of things planned over this Bank Holiday weekend from
#WOTS (word on the street)
The metal barriers around The Liberal Club (new Wetherspoons Site) is to protect against vandalism so I’m afraid you can’t get too excited yet - I did see this week on one of the community pages; someone was starting another rumour about Wetherspoons no longer coming because Sainsbury’s had said no to them delivering on their land #utterrubbish .. Technical words for, that’s not true!
THE LADY CARES - SET TO LEAVE
Some of you may have heard already, but the lovely shop, The Lady Cares will be closing by the end of this year, I know for one, I will be extremely sad for this to go and for lots of reasons,
Domino's is coming........ Just a rumour at the minute, but I am checking it out to be sure
Genix Dentist is due to complete its expansion, downstairs at the end of May, #oldhabits #illuminatedsigns going up
No signs yet for the new Southern Fried Chicken shop – what do you think, it will be called?
Garforth Fried Chicks!
Chickens of Garforth
Northern Fried Chicken!
Yorkshire Fried birds!
Fun guessing game, but it’s likely it will be called SFC
I believe Louis Theroux was also in Garforth last week, in Daniel Yorath House by all accounts filming for one of his television shows!
I see the development for the former depot, Green Lane is back in planning for Consent Agreement or approval is required for certain conditions, this may explain why no work has been carried out on this site for a while.
Until next week.......
MAKE THE EFFORT NOT AN EXCUSE
My name is Christine Thom, I came to live in Garforth nearly 22 years ago; you may have seen me around ?
