Meet South Leeds Life at our news cafe

Do you have a story about yourself, someone you know or something that’s happening in your community? Then now’s your chance to tell South Leeds Life!

We’re offering local residents a place to meet, eat and drink and meet some of the folks who contribute to South Leeds Life. Your ideas and observations are very welcome. We’d love to discuss local issues with you.  You can come and tell us your stories and we’ll do our best to report on them.
We’ll also offer you all the support you need to get more involved with South Leeds Life and perhaps become a contributor – remember this is YOUR blog, written by local people for local people.
The first event will be held next Thursday, December 1, at Belle Isle Community Cafe in Belle Isle Family Centre, next to St John and St Barnabus Church, Belle Isle Road, 9.30am-11am.
The second event will be held at the same venue and time the following Thursday, December 8.
If the events are popular enough, we’ll run news cafes in other parts of south Leeds in the New Year – so watch this space!
We hope this will be a social hub which will see the people behind South Leeds Life there on rotation, giving people the chance to meet them and talk about what’s going on in the community.
We’ll also have a stall where you can come and meet us for a chat at the Holbeck Christmas Gala at St Matthew’s Community Centre, Holbeck on Saturday, December 3 (11am-3pm).
We’re also hoping to be at other Christmas events, which we’ll announce soon.
Hope to see you soon!
