June Outdoor Club

This month we’re visiting Yorke Gate Garden, in, Adel, on Wednesday 29 June. Tucked away in North Leeds, York Gate is a magical one-acre garden created by the Spencer family between 1951 and 1994. It is one of the finest small gardens in the country with a design of ‘rooms’ interlinked through a succession of vistas with meticulous attention to detail. There’s also a tea room, plant nursery and gift shop. Our plan is to meet in time for a 2pm entrance slot, look around the garden and then stay on for tea or coffee if people wish to. Admission is £7, paid on entry, but we do need to book tickets in advance so please email chapelpiewi@gmail.com by Monday 20 June to reserve your place.

August Film Club

Join us online at 7.30 pm on Monday 22 August when we will be having an informal chat about two films. “Concrete Cowboy” is available on Amazon Prime (small fee) or Netflix. Sent to live with his estranged father for the summer, a rebellious teen finds kinship in a tight-knit Philadelphia community of Black cowboys. “Man in the Hat” is available on Amazon Prime for £1.99. A man journeys through France in a Fiat 500 accompanied by a framed photograph of an unknown woman. He is pursued by five angry men in a Citroen. Travelling north on his escape, he encounters mysterious strangers, coming face-to-face with the vivid eccentricities of an old country while trying to evade the pursuers who are always relentlessly on his tail.
