Mosaics with a message

This month saw the installation of a new mosaic, on the outside of the St Luke’s Cares shop on Dewsbury Road in Beeston.

It reads ‘The climate’s changing – are we?’, and was created by members of the local community, in partnership with Seagulls Paint – a Leeds social enterprise specialising in community arts and sustainability. Other mosaics also went up on venues including Middleton Family Centre and Beeston Village Community Centre, in conjunction with Health for All.








Cllr Ed Carlisle (Green, Hunslet & Riverside), who arranged the installation on Dewsbury Road, and St Luke’s Cares continue to work on a south Leeds ‘Save Money and Save the Planet’ campaign, in partnership with Our Future Beeston, Climate Action Leeds, and others. The campaign features: recycling awareness, a green-themed film festival this autumn, and supporting local projects like Repair Café and the School Uniform Swap.
