Over the past few weeks local shops have seen a decline in business, especially on Saturdays... where are you all? I hear it’s across the nation, are people on holiday, are people saving for Christmas? I hear The White Rose was extremely busy.... we have 2 more months of pay before the big fella comes, what is it that makes you drive all the way to a massive busy department store for Christmas shopping, Price? Choice? I've compiled a list of some of the great things we have to offer, if this doesn't help, send me an email and see if I can help further . firstname.lastname@example.org

'LA LA LA'
It was the first week of rehearsal for Garforth Community Choir on Wednesday and Wow what a fantastic evening it was. All those face of in trepidation; there was only a few, soon turned to smiles and joy as Cleve Freckleton put them at ease, and listened to their tones and where they should sit within the choir. Cleve is going to get you singing all genres, he wants you to have fun which is the main reason I put GGC together #watchthisspace to hear about their first performance!
Have a look at our page https://www.facebook.com/groups/1734083406819196/ or have a look under local bands on here to see further details about joining in the choir. You can still enrol next week , just come to Garforth Academy just before 7pm to the Main Entrance, meet James Jelliman from Arts Live and I before you go down to meet the rest of the choir
