Yesterday (26 September 2023) saw Team Beeston, part of Leeds Citizens, celebrating the resurfacing of the pathway that crosses Beeston, linking the Cardinals with Asda.
With balloons, cake, and drinks we set up on the pathway to meet the people who use the paths. It was great to share our celebration with the Lord Mayor of Leeds, Cllr Al Garthwaite, our councillors Andrew Scopes and Gohar Almas (Labour, Beeston & Holbeck) along with the resurfacing work team and staff from Asda.
It was wonderful to hear so many people tell us how the resurfaced path has made such a difference to them. One young man from Cockburn School thanked us, saying it has helped him get to school without muddy shoes. Another lady said it’s great for pushing the pram and the older children can use their scooters and bikes much more easily.
As South Leeds Life has previously reported, Team Beeston has campaigned over the last two years to get the footpaths adopted and resurfaced by the Council, living up to their motto: ‘Team Beeston working together to bring a better Beeston for all’.
Our next listening event takes place at St Andrew’s Methodist Church on Old Lane on Tuesday 14 November at 7pm. Come along and make a difference
