The newly formed ‘Beeston Hill Community Association’ had its first meeting on Monday 22 May 2023 at The Hamara Centre. This community led group aims to give residents of Beeston Hill* the opportunity to get to know neighbours, share their views on community life and issues and be heard. We hope to celebrate what is strong in our community, not simply focus on what is wrong. We would love to see residents getting to know one another, working together to speak up for the area and bring about change.
It was wonderful to see a good number of local residents alongside all our Hunslet & Riverside Councillors at the relaxed and informal meeting. We enjoyed some delicious food cooked by our fellow community member, Shazia, we played human bingo as well as giving our thoughts and ideas on topics such as children & young people, community safety/crime the environment, the cost of living crisis, community events and health & well being.
We hope to build on this positive start and will look to meet every couple of months (next meeting will be in July, date to be confirmed). If you live in the area and want to make our community better we would love to hear from you – please get involved! Our Facebook page will be up and running very soon to get in touch and find out more. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
* Beeston Hill Community Association covers the old red brick housing around the Tempest Road area, down to Dewsbury Road, including areas such as the Harlechs, Woodviews, Stratfords and all surrounding streets.
