A scary time for Las Vegas, this week, there’s only ever one question, WHY… thankfully my husband who was there last week with work, came back on Friday evening. Poor innocent people who were just out having a good time in a fun place. But hey, America won’t do anything about their gun crime! They had one failed shoe bomb attempt and now everyone has to take off their shoes for inspection at the airport, how many massacres shooting have they had over the years? #myopinion
Oh no, Travellers in Garforth, much to everyone’s disgust. It does make me laugh when people accuse them off all sorts when they’ve only just parked up, I do understand the annoyance, but the hatred, it’s a whole other step, I wonder how many people would say to their faces what they say on Social media? When they parked up at Garforth Leisure Centre, I thought they may have been using their Bodyline card ! From time to time, they will pop in, pop up and set up. But we have enough good people in the know, who can soon have them removed. Nice cars they had too !
Please be careful if you’re parking on the estate on Woodlands Drive including all the cul-de-sacs, Permit Parking is now in force and traffic wardens are in operation – the residents are ecstatic!!
Nice to hear our love Chair of Garforth Feastival has already organised and confirmed stalls for our 2018 market – We are changing things a bit next year; for the better of course.

I heard a little bird telling me something will be going on, on Monday in Garforth, early morning and something to do with ITV! #waitandsee
Had a meeting this week with Thierry at Dumouchel, as part of my campaign over the next few weeks to show you how shopping local can be affordable. We are going to run a campaign called, ‘use your loaf’ Thierry and the team will be show casing one of their breads each week over the course of approximately 8 weeks, telling you how their breads are made, what the ingredients are, (no sugar) being one of them and how buying a local loaf can go a long way. So keep your eyes open and, use your loaf

Cielo have released another date for their acoustic night, 11th November. Sadly I’m not about for this one. It’s only £5 a ticket and I can personally recommend after attending their first one, it was a really nice evening with good friends, good drink, great music and yummy hot sandwiches – go local
DON'T PANIC Pride and Produce have only temporarily shut their doors for bistro evenings, but we will see them back open in December, here's their Christmas Menu - so get booking in
