Winter has arrived, darn! But look at the positives, at least we’re not in Chicago, were it was minus 37 last night nor do we live in Michigan where the fifth largest lake in the world is frozen over, and it’s actually dangerous to talk outside! Imagine, if all of Garforth was silent….!
This week I held another Repair Café meeting in the Library – the lovely Clary from Leeds Repair Café came along and we sat and listened to how they have been running their group, over the past 3 years. They run it every 2 months on a Saturday and it's helped with lots of things. Not only fixing small appliances for example, but connected community, people also come to have a bite to eat, a natter and cuppa. This is mainly what I would like it our Repair Café to be, more than just a quick fix! I now have to go away and check on a few red tape issues, insurances and availability as well as looking to set up a separate, Facebook group to see if we can get you, the local community to come and be one of our volunteers. In order things happen, we need people to come together.
What’s coming up in the Half Term –
book on with our Local Youth services firstname.lastname@example.org - be quick as places get booked up
It’s getting close. As many of you will know, I have been nominated for 2 awards. To be nominated the third year in the row is awesome, but to win would be incredible, so if you think I deserve those voters, please click away
Wetherspoons have asked for extensions of times, on beer delivery and beer garden, waiting for approval.
You can take a look yourself at any plans that come in, just put in Garforth, and click on status, Current.
Don't get caught out - as of today Friday 1st February - The Car Park behind Lee's The Greengrocers, has been changed to 1 hour. - helpful landlord!
