Hello South Leeds! Here’s your weekly round-up of what’s making the area tick on blogs and websites in the area.
“In only its second year the dedicated and enthusiastic In Bloom group is making a clear impression in Holbeck through it’s wide ranging environmental activities. The organisational abilities of its members and the extent of support from public and private partnerships are bringing new life to the community which is undergoing considerable changes due to a number of current development opportunities.”

The YEP follows up our couple of posts on today’s launch of a campaign to bring thousands of empty Leeds houses back into use, which is being launched in Beeston today (sorry YEP, it’s not an exclusive!). And the paper updates us on the latest preparations for this year’s Beeston Festival.
Friends of Middleton Park have posted more photos of the ongoing development work in the park and specifically the Lakeside Centre.
