This week I’m shouting about one of our great local artists, we do have a fair few in Garforth who are equally wonderful and have their own unique design.
John is on all sorts of social media pages so it makes it easy to keep up to date with all his work.
John has a great following of people who adore and love is work, click on a link and take a look.
John's work can also be seen in these galleries http://drawninyorkshire.com/galleries/
A Link to John’s pages where you can buy his fantastic artwork too
A lot of his pictures are set on the East coast of Yorkshire, and they would fit wonderfully in a holiday home or a B&B as well as your own home of course.
John's art give a sense of realism, you can literally picture yourself there, and you can feel the weather and the nature of the surroundings in his paintings; he’s extremely talented.
John is also a designer and on many occasions, we have worked together to create lots of artwork including all the logos and signage for The Main Deal.
Contact John as he also does commission pieces

The lovely Karen has owned this great shop for a fair few years, it’s a shop that has so much, you will honestly go in to buy one thing and come out with several other things because of the choice, the offers and the bargains to be had.
Don’t let the name put you off, Ladycares isn’t all about women, it caters for all the essential items you need in your life from your top to your bottom including that of your house. It’s great for every product you use now or something your parents and grandparents used to swear by.
Great for men too deodorants, hair colour, shaving, teeth, aftershave, shower gel, creams, potions and lotions.
If I had to list everything down here that Karen’s shop sold, I would still be here next Friday’s shout out.
Ladycares stocks well known brands, makeup and cleaning products, it’s great for holidays coming up from first aid essentials to small varieties of your favourites. Ladycares also stocks some quirky little items too – you just need to stop, turn, and go in
Karen’s shops is one of those shops that if we don’t use it, by this time next year, she might be gone
You can find and follow Ladycares on
Have a look at the some of the snaps I share from time to time so it gives you an idea of the range of items she sells
Wow, is the only word you can say when entering Augustus Court, you could be a million miles away in this 5* care home, which is like no other care home you will have been to or have a perception about. There is nothing clinical about the home at all, only comfort, luxury and a sense of calm, it has a fabulous 24 hour care system in place for all residents, the layout is well thought out with areas for residents to have full independents should they wish. Not only have the designers produced this wonderful opulent place you would feel comfortable leaving your family to live, but the design team have clearly worked with the care team extremely well in order all the needs will be met for elderly residents. From the short corridors to rooms, with a great choice of spaces with different functions such as, The Nook a day room where you could have a read, write a letter or do a puzzle to an evening change, into a cinema room, a beauty salon where you could use with your family member or wait for the beautician and hairdresser to come in, one of the day rooms looks over the allotments at the back so it’s a great place to relax and see what’s going on, The beautiful restaurant is upstairs with access by lift which means residents can enjoy eating times relaxed without the passing of people from reception downstairs.
Over the past few months Meridian Care have shared lots of pictures through their Twitter account, so you’ve been able to get a sense of how magnificent this place is, but I wanted to show you pictures of the finer details, show how much thought has really gone into this, home from home with added luxury
You really need to just go and take a look at this fabulous 58 room carehome; their Marketing Suite is open daily. They are a very welcoming team, follow their links to find out more or call to have a show round
Telephone: 0333 999 8727.
Their official date of opening is next Monday, 19th February, with residents already moving in
Meridian Care really want to work with the community for the business and their residents, after a great meeting with Janet yesterday, she will be looking into the possibilities of working with other local Garforth businesses.
I just need to a get a few more members on board and them I’m moving in.... well I like to be the first to do unique things; I’ll be the first 41 year old to move into a care home!
Giving a huge shout out to local businesses in Garforth and surrounding areas.
