INSPIRED BY FOOD.

Garforth Feastival is back.

Saturday 14th July 2018 – keep your calendar clear!

The inaugural Garforth Community Feastival was held on the 15th July 2017 on Mainstreet Garforth.  The event was created to help bring the Garforth and neighbouring communities together to showcase and celebrate great independent food and drink businesses in and around the area.

By holding such an event we were not only celebrating what we already have but also making new independent businesses aware of what Garforth has to offer in the hope of them establishing a presence on our high street.

As a community group, we recognise the importance of a vibrant high street for jobs, wealth and opportunity creation, as well as the value of the local pound (£) in Garforth.

A huge thank you to all the businesses and volunteers that got involved last year. It was a fantastic day and we are looking forward to the 2nd Garforth Feastival in 2018 – there is still time to get involved. Click the ‘Get in Touch’ button below and say hello.

Cielo

Cielo was born out of a heart to see community become a verb and not just a noun. And there is no better place to find communal ground than over coffee.

In the days of old communities were supported by local shops where all the produce from veg to furniture were sourced locally thereby supporting the area. Well these days it is impossible and unaffordable to source all our consumer needs locally (we can’t grow coffee in the uk yet!) but we can be responsible for trying to source everything as locally and ethically as possible. We can also commit to put ALL our profits back into the local community.

Cielo is a Social Enterprise. We want to be a successful business that offers the best quality and product in our market, and one that makes lots of money to put back into the community. But we will commit to always remain far more affordable than our competitors.

Cielo was set up to do two things; (i) build better community cohesion and (ii) reduce loneliness. We think a coffee house is a great start.

Our very own Garforth Library is also getting involved with Garfeast 2018 with some special events on the day.

The Women’s Institute (WI) was formed in 1915 to revitalise rural communities and encourage women to become more involved in producing food during the First World War.

Since then the organisation’s aims have broadened and the WI is now the largest voluntary women’s organisation in the UK. The WI celebrated its centenary in 2015 and currently has almost 220,000 members in approximately 6,300 WIs.

The WI plays a unique role in providing women with educational opportunities and the chance to build new skills, to take part in a wide variety of activities and to campaign on issues that matter to them and their communities.

Women’s Institute was established in Garforth in January 2017 and the ladies will be selling a wide range of scrumptious cakes and treats on the day.
