Hunslet TARA celebrates 25th year with exciting projects

This year Hunslet Tenants & Residents Association (Hunslet TARA) marks its 25th anniversary, we will be joining forces with many organisations within Hunslet.

We kickoff on Saturday 15 October 2022 with the Church of England. Leeds diocese will be answering questions and giving us an update on the redevelopment of St Mary’s Spire in Hunslet. The meeting takes place at 12pm in Hunslet Community Hub & Library.

Hunslet TARA Is working with organisations such as the Crooked Clock pub to clean up and maintain the horse trough on Low Road in Hunslet. Morrisons will be donating some plants as well as helping out. Cllr Paul Wray (Labour, Hunslet & Riverside) is commissioning a lecturn with a local historian. We will be welcoming children from Low Road Primary School of the Music Federation to help out. As you would imagine we will be aiming to work with the school trying to include them in as many events and activities as possible that we will be putting on.

Cllr Wray has commented,

“I am pleased that two prominent local organisations have adopted this valuable local landmark. I have received a lot of input from the community who are eager to see it maintained. It is important to secure Hunslet’s history where possible.”

This project will take place on Wednesday 19 October at 10am. All help is very much welcomed.

Hunslet TARA will also be working with Hunslet Festival (Gala) who will be marking their 20th anniversary and we will be partnering with them on at least two events.

We will be doing more with the Crooked Clock, we are also working with the Hub and Library and Morrisons to plan our annual Christmas festival featuring a Christmas market.

Later on in the year we will be joining forces in a large project with Housing Leeds.

As always, Hunslet TARA are looking for help and welcome any volunteers. Look us up via our Facebook group to see all arrangements, you can also email us directly
