Crocus Bulbs

Many thanks to the small but dedicated band of volunteers who planted 1000 crocus bulbs this morning. As they’d already started sprouting (the bulbs not the volunteers!) we hope they will bring some welcome colour in 2018 and for years to come. Thanks too to Councillors Sharon Hamilton and Rebecca Charlwood for coming along and getting stuck in.

500 bulbs planted at the junction of Parkside Road & Stonegate Road.

500 bulbs planted at the Junction of Meanwood Road and Stainbeck Lane.

A Wind of Change – Final Call

A Wind of Change – FINAL CASTING CALL and backstage recruitment !!!

This is your last chance to take part in our community theatre project and celebrate the stories and people of Meanwood.

Throughout the autumn, we’ve been working hard to create the structure of the show. After Christmas, we begin rehearsals before going in front of the audience mid-February.

Now we know what the show will look like, we are seeking people to fill these gaps:

  • Confident adult singers and vocalists: must be able to rehearse Tuesday evenings.
  • Energetic young people aged 9 – 18 years: must be able to rehearse Saturday late mornings.
  • Backstage and technical crew and makers.

Could you be part of the team?

If you’re interested, get in touch with Ness as soon as possible!

Wonderful Christmas Gesture

We’ve been told about a wonderful Christmas gesture made by Scott and the team at the Myrtle Tavern and their sister pub in Yeadon, the White Swan.

They, sponsored by RDF Building Ltd,  are offering a special Community Christmas Dinner  for those of the older generation who need some special festive cheer this Christmas.

Specifically it is for elderly relatives or maybe a neighbour who is spending Christmas alone this year, someone who doesn’t get the chance to socialise like most of us do. The Myrtle and the White Swan would like to invite them to join them for a complimentary Christmas Dinner on 21st December from 12noon.

The day promises to offer a warm welcome to members of our local community who would like to enjoy Christmas lunch and the chance to chat amongst other like-minded people in the festive atmosphere both pubs have to offer.

RDF Building Ltd has partnered with Myrtle Tavern Meanwood and sister pub The White Swan, Yeadon to fund and host a complimentary Christmas Dinner Party as part of their ‘Give back to the community’ initiative.

If you know of someone who could benefit form this generous offer, please get in touch to book your free space and they will look after the rest.
