20 Harlech Avenue, Leeds, LS11 7DT
I’ve lived, worked and volunteered across this area for 16+ years. I’ve co-led or supported dozens of projects, including the Clean Air campaign, Beeston Festival, Holbeck Viaduct, Leeds Repair Cafe, Hunslet Gala, Waterfront Festival, South Leeds Life, schools and youth work, sports and leisure events, and more.
And I’m active locally year-round, working with other residents and the authorities to tackle issues together: bins, housing, crime, waste, paths and roads, and more. (Full details in our giant Community Manifesto.) At the heart of this is working with local people, building innovative and resident-led solutions to the challenges we face.
With incredible support from a wide range of great local people, I’ve stood in elections for this area since 2015. I’ve come a strong second and got ever closer, each time: we’re the only credible alternative here to tired old Labour.
At a time when the big parties are in such a mess – locally and nationally – no wonder people are looking for alternatives. This election presents a great opportunity for us to start afresh, elect local people to be a strong independent voice for our communities, and turn our neighbourhoods and city around for good.

Paul Ian WRAY
It has been an honour to be the Councillor for the communities I live in for the last year. You set me the task of taking on the long-term issues of the ward and to make a difference. In that time, I have:
- invested in Trentham Park and agreed funding to upgrade Brickfields, Rowland Road, Pepper Road and Hunslet Lake Parks, and to upgrade the green opposite Middleton Railway, Church Street, and Hunslet Moor
- invested in anti-dog fouling signs, litter bins and new community noticeboards (to be installed in the next month)
- started to tackle missed bin collections, with new enforcement measures due this year, and I’ve had road cleaning done more often in some areas
- been to almost every resident’s association meeting, and launched Hunslet Moor Forum, with plans to launch a Hunslet Green and Riverside Forum this year
- launched four new monthly Councillor surgeries
- attended 200+ public events
- managed 500+ matters of resident’s casework
and much more. I’ve dedicated all I am to the task you gave me, and this is only a small sample of the work I’ve started. I’m asking you to re-elect me to keep working for you and all the communities of this ward.
