Never have the words on the iconic Angel Chair on Goodwood Road been more apt “Whether sitting alone or together, cheerful or gloomy, the Angel of Goodwood sees with honest eyes.”
The good people of Goodwood Road, Goodwood aka the “the heart of Goodwood” are doing their best to be cheerful together and are certainly adapting to the current times.
Many of the restaurants and cafes are now offering take away with pick up or delivery – and with such a variety of cuisines on offer, it’s not hard to find something to tantalise your taste buds in these troubled times. Yeti Nepalese, Vietnam Gourmet, Candela Latin American and The Balti House to name but a few. Check the full list at here.
Others have come up with other ways of doing the biz. Trouble and Strife, while closed, is offering weekly Trouble and Strife at home goody boxes, Goodwood Quality Meats has an SMS ordering system and drive-thru pick up, The Physio Studio is offering physio by video and A Touch of Beauty is sending any products and gift vouchers ordered on line via overnight express postage, at no charge.
Goodwood Community Services is running a weekly program of on line Facebook “live” events including stories and play activities for children, yoga, pilates and mindfulness. The weekly schedule goes up each Sunday.
And we’re loving seeing the rainbow decorated letterboxes and fences in Goodwood and the surrounding suburbs, and the up-cycled “garden” on the Goodwood Primary School fence – rainbow coming! They’re doing their best to spread some goody cheer.
