I went along to the Middleton Community Event at Middleton Commutator Centre last Wednesday (19 September 2018).
The event was held by local organisations at Council Social Centre. My thanks go to Rachel from Leeds City Council, for preparing the buffet.
Around 30 people, staff, Councillors Paul Truswell, Kim Groves and Judith Blake, board members and local residents turned up for the event.
I spoke the Police there, and asked if any nearer to getting rid of the quad bikes in the area and try to put a stop to fireworks in the street.
As always, they said they are trying to do their best with limited funds from government for policing.
Next were staff from The St George’s Centre, Middleton.
I see they now have a Chess Club every Saturday 10.30am-12.30pm. For Schools. I used to play Chess myself, but not very good at it.
