Beeston Forum is back in business

Established over twenty years ago, the Beeston Community Forum is back in business after the Covid-19 pandemic.

The group’s aim is to make Beeston a better place to live and takes an interest in any issues that are affecting local people’s lives in the area bounded by Cross Flatts Park, Elland Road, the Ring Road and Middleton Park.

Meetings take place once a month on the first Thursday at Beeston Village Community Centre, off Town Street at 7:30pm. There is usually a guest speaker, in the past these have included the Police & Crime Commissioner, the Chief Executive of Leeds United and senior managers from First Bus.

At their next meeting on Thursday (6 October 2022) the forum will be addressed by Sgt Lund (deputising for Insp Perry) from the Neighbourhood Policing Team, who will speak about Policing in the ward.

The Forum is well supported by the three Beeston & Holbeck Councillors, Gohar Almass, Annie Maloney and Andrew Scopes.

Chair Christine Thornton said:

“The Committee is keen to encourage more residents to attend and have their say in the issues that affect Beeston Village. Please come along and join us, everyone is welcome to attend.”

The Forum will hold its Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Thursday 1 December.
