13 September 2016

Colleagues from the Oakwood branch of leading estate agent Manning Stainton made time to support a ‘Summer Garden Party Extravaganza’ under the shadow of the iconic Oakwood Clock.

The event was organised by Oakwood Traders and Residents Association (OTRA) as a celebration of the famous art deco Leeds landmark, and their love for the bustling and thriving community of Oakwood. 

Visitors to the one-off event enjoyed an array of unique craft stalls, refreshments and a mixed programme of entertainment and street performers, including the hugely popular flamenco dancers who captivated the large crowd.

There was also a charity raffle, collection and other fund raising initiatives, including Manning Stainton’s popular ‘find the key to the door’ game, which contributed to the £400 raised on behalf of Meningitis UK and OTRA. 

Branch Manager Helen Taylor was among the Manning Stainton team operating the game where people had the chance to win one of five, £30 vouchers to spend at Trinity Leeds, and says: ’This was a wonderful event which brought so many people together and was the perfect way to showcase everything that makes this area so popular with residents and visitors alike. We were thrilled to be part of it.’     

One of the lucky voucher winners was 8 year old Tobias Hicking from Chapel Allerton.

The event was also used to launch the new Oakwood Craft Market’s Craft@TheClock which will take place at Oakwood Clock on the last Saturday of the month, commencing on September 24th.  

Becca Ahmed who organised the event along with her mother, Jacqui Hine, explains: ‘We are so lucky to have such a wide range of local traders and crafts people who share our passion for Oakwood that we felt a monthly market would be an excellent addition to the life of the community.

‘The support we received for the Summer Garden Party from both the general public and local businesses such as Manning Stainton has definitely reconfirmed this opinion.’ 

The Oakwood branch of Manning Stainton is open 7 days a week and the team is ready to take customer calls from 8am-8pm every day. It is one of 19 Residential Sales and Lettings branches across West and North Yorkshire helping people move.
