Happy New Year to all our readers!

Everyone here at South Leeds Life would like to wish you all the very best for 2012.

We’ve got some exciting plans for the New Year, so keep your eyes peeled!

We’ll be keeping our eye on the big issues such as the new supermarkets planned for Beeston and Middleton, the future of South Leeds Sports Centre and security at Hunslet Cemetery.

We’re more than interested in your good news stories, too – so please do tell us about your achievements and the good stuff. We’d also like local groups from different backgrounds to tell us about what they’re up to as well.

Remember, this is YOUR blog, written by and for south Leeds residents. So please do keep your articles, videos and photographs coming in. Let us know if you have a story to tell. We can offer help and support if you’re not sure how to tell your story – contact us on southleedslife@gmail.com.

Last month we had more than 6,000 page impressions on the site, and a month prior to that a South Leeds Life magazine with a 2,500 print run was distributed across the area. We’re currently working on the next issue and welcome your contributions, so… watch this space!
