OMG – I don’t use this text speak very often. But OMG, Garforth is well and truly shouting and being well and truly put on the map of Leeds today for 2 reasons and it’s a Bank Holiday Weekend!
This Morning we woke up to the results of Garforth & Swillington Independent party bringing the results home; in a pretty big win, whatever you supported, the numbers of the independents should certainly shout out to all parties that they need to pull their fingers out in towns! and of course, we see TDY come through our streets.
This morning’s ladies race came through and Main Street was buzzing. What a lovely, lovely picture, to see everyone out cheering and whooping the ladies on. Spend money locally people this is a perfect opportunity to do so. Our local cafes are all geared up to feed you and there are some fabulous offers to have in all of them. Don’t forget the Station House Café and Freshly Made are also catering for your TDY needs.
We have a podcast up today and here are some bits of information about what’s going on as the itinerary for today’s events was only released last night; after my podcast recording.
Road closed this afternoon at 4.00pm until approximately 6.30pm
I am currently having my logo redesigned, freshened up by the lovely ladies that are, Buttercrumble and I look forward to showing you very soon. I love their quirky and happy illustrations and I hope they can capture me and The Main Deal premise in their design
