Readers also posted 48 comments on stories on a variety of topics.

May was also an exciting month for us as we became a fully constituted community group with some exciting plans for the future.  Issue three of South Leeds Life magazine also hit the streets this week, with 3,500 copies being published.

If you’d like to contribute to our blog, drop us an email at You could write about your local group, what’s happening in the area, your own personal story, shout out about a positive achievement or post reports from your sports teams – almost anything goes as long as it’s community based and about the lives of people in South Leeds! We can offer you all the help and support you need – it’s easier than you think, and it’s fun.

Onwards and upwards! Enjoy the long bank holiday weekend.

– The South Leeds Life team
