News of Reopenings!

HEART is reopening!
 
From 29th March we will have takeaway food and drink available from Assembly Bar + Kitchen operating from 10am-3pm. (Please note we will be closed over the Easter weekend).Our workspace, Pulse, has desks available. We have a new day-rate as well as our usual monthly memberships if people want to join and have a break from working from home.From 12th April we are able to welcome you back to sit outside in the ‘Playground’. We have bought a large marquee to ensure there is plenty of shelter for you but still plenty of space outside if you prefer to face the elements! From this date you are able to meet in groups of up to 6, or two households although social distancing does remain in place. We’ll be open from 9am to 9pm from Monday to Saturday and would recommend booking a table through our website as we hope we’ll be busy. The menu has been updated and the team are ready and looking forward to serving  our community again.We believe the marquee will prove a popular addition to HEART which is why we have invested in this. We do have a Crowdfunder running to help with the costs of this, and any donations massively appreciated. https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/your-support-keeps-us-going
Headingley Farmers’ Market is back!
 
We are delighted to announce the relaunch of Headingley Farmers’ Market on Saturday 10th April. Our stallholders can’t wait to see you again!Most of your favourites will be there: Swillington Organic Farm, Mario Olianas, Yiannis Kardamakis, Johnson’s fish from Scarborough, Linconshire Poacher Cheese, Stickey’s Honey and a dozen more.There are a few changes: we’re very sorry that Thistlemist Farm will no longer be coming, though you can buy her soups and sauces at various farm shops. In her place near the exit will be our (new-ish) vegan stall, Honest Edibles.The layout of the Market will be very similar to that of last year. The entrance is on North Lane, there will be a one-way system and you will be asked to wear masks unless medically exempt. A maximum of only 5 customers (or households) will be allowed to queue at each stall. This is to ensure social distancing on our small site so you are encouraged to ‘shop don’t stop’.We look forward to good weather and we know that our great musicians, Kilburn, Coles and Rendell, will help to make it go with a swing. The market is from 9am until 12.30.Also…Headingley Country Markets is looking for a new baker/maker. If interested talk to them at the stall on April 10th.The HFM organising group is also seeking new members – it’s hard work but fun. Find out more from one of the group at the market or email gillredfearn@yahoo.co.uk
