The Inner North West Community Committee held a ‘Thank You’ Event At TJ’s in Woodhouse on Tuesday. The Lord Mayor, and our chair of trustees, Cllr Al Garthwaite was in attendance This was for the many organisations and groups throughout Headingley, Woodhouse, Hyde Park, Little London and Weetwood that contribute in a myriad of ways to making our areas better places in which to live through a commitment to volunteering. Caring Together were delighted to be represented at this wonderful celebration and offer thanks to all of those local councillors who are so instrumental in making this event possible and supporting our groups in so many different ways.
This year’s autumn flu and COVID-19 vaccine programmes are starting earlier than planned in England as a precautionary measure following the identification of a new COVID-19 variant. The NHS winter flu and COVID-19 vaccination programme provides vital protection to those eligible and their families over winter, keeping people from developing serious illnesses, and helping to minimise hospitalisations during busy winter months.
Residents of older adult care homes and those most at risk including those who are immunosuppressed and housebound older adults will receive their covid vaccine first and this starts from today. Eligible people are urged to come forward for their jab as soon as they’re invited.
Fortunately we managed to pick a dry day for our recent outing to St Aidans.
The reserve was looking lovely, as always, and it was wonderful to be able to escape the hustle and bustle and reconnect with nature for a while. A short talk from one of the rangers kicked off our visit and then some went off to explore before relaxing in the cafe, and others stayed on the cafe terrace and soaked up the atmosphere, enjoying the amazing view across the lakes.
