Communities in South Leeds are renowned for their hard-working community groups and organisations. There are a lot of good people in South Leeds!
While we are lucky to have places like Middleton Park and Cross Flatts Park on our doorstep, there are other aspects of Beeston, Belle Isle, Cottingley Hall, Holbeck, Hunslet and Middleton that could be improved. .
Poor bus services, anti-social behaviour and rubbish dumping are just some of the issues we’ve discussed in the past on South Leeds Life. We’ve also looked at dog fouling through our Scoop It Up campaign.
Is community spirit on the wane? Is apathy taking hold of our communities? Organisations like Beeston Hill Residents’ Voice have folded this year. Are local shops being squeezed at the expense of large supermarket chains? Are Leeds United really a good neighbour?
Southleedslife.com isn’t here just to promote the local events and news, we are here to try help improve the area and give local people a voice, so as our readers this is YOUR opportunity to tell the local councillors (who we know are reading this) what you would like to be improved in your community.
If you had the money and power to improve your part of South Leeds for one day, what would you do? Post your comments below or tweet us @southleedslife or leave a comment on our Facebook page. It’s time to have your say!
