Eat your way to Christmas, today is Chocolate Brownie day and tomorrow is decorate ginger biscuits day...... Please stop making me do these naughty things! I suppose I best get on with it as I don't want to be on Santa's good list!
Eat nice things, we can recover in January
If you're still to purchase a fresh Christmas tree, you can buy them from

Who’s counting down this next week? Most of our local schools finish next Friday and we can start to enjoy the week leading up to Christmas Day; my absolute favourite time of the year. Sometimes the lead up seems just as, if not more exciting than the day itself. There are lots fun things going on locally, so make sure you check out our events on the Facebook page and also check out what's going on in and around our wonderful city
NEW MEMBERS this week, we welcome.....

How fabulous to hear this week, That TdY is coming through Kippax and Garforth and then heading through to Scholes.... Wow, this will be brilliant for Garforth and I hope the traders on Main Street really get behind it; I;m sure I will be influsing some ideas here....#maythe4th be with us

You may have heard rumours over on other Social Media sites, if not, we are to get a new Pizza Restaurant where the Vape Lounge used to be, and in planning, they have asked to extended their opening hours in order it can be open for lunch as well as a bit later in the evenings. I'm looking forward to having more options to add to our night time vibe here in Garforth - bring it on I say; and the owner is independent #happydays
Next week will be my last Blog of the year… where has 2017 gone an what have we achieved, done, changed as a town? Read all about it next week
