Ok, who opened their curtains on Thursday morning and said rude words under their breath, whilst they could hear their kids screaming with joy in the background that school may be having another snow day?!
As much as the snow caused major chaos making Garforth a large car park for a few hours in the morning, eventually the sun came out and it melted very quickly.
A sun request going in upstairs going forward. A lot of my neighbours have daffodils in their window in vases trying to encourage spring. The funny thing is, in certain parts of the country this weekend, it is forecast to be up to 15 degrees!! #Madweatherweek
Yesterday we celebrated, International Women’s Day – definitely something that should be celebrated. Each year women are gaining more confidence to do greater things and having the support to do it. If you have a look at the Nobel Prize’s post about these fabulous women of the world who have, for a long time being changing the world. https://twitter.com/NobelPrize/status/971614370462617600 #amazingwomen

The weekly Chair Based Exercise in the Library every Wednesday will be on at 1.30pm a great little workout and good to meet new local people.
Nothing new in planning – there was however doubt earlier in the week about a false planning decision notice that had been put up on lampposts on Woodlands Drive about a multi storey car park coming in the woods off woodlands drive…. It was quite funny, but I’m not sure a’ residents saw the funny side
Also some had put a post-up about McDonalds coming to Garforth – I can’t even be bothered going into this, they’re really NOT coming to Garforth
I see someone is in the new houses on, Green Lane next to East Garforth train station and the others are all saying, sold! I hope they got them for a song and a dance
Ninelands Road is starting to look very different trees have now being chopped down! I also see as well as demolishing the buildings that were left, they have already started working on the drainage... doesn't take long.
I read this week on Garforth Gossip the new Manager of Lidl had introduced himself. Thankfully most posts on the thread were kind, but he still had to hold onto his hat for the few who, if they ran as much as their mouth did, they would be extremely fit! #eyestothesky
