South Leeds Roundup: Brushes, boxing and wheelchair basketball

Here’s your regular roundup of what’s making South Leeds tick on other websites, blogs and across Facebook and Twitter.

We start this week with the Friends of Hunslet Moor who helped with a clear up of the knot garden last Saturday, there are some great photos on the Leeds Parks and Countryside Service Facebook page.


Fans of the TLA (three letter acronym) will be pleased to hear that HEA are holding their AGM on Friday. If I tell you that it’s at St Matthew’s Community Centre can you guess that we’re takilking about Holbeck Elderly Aid’s Annual General Meeting?

We featured boxer Abby Briggs in a recent article and The Hunslet Club has news that’s she’s made her debut for Yorkshire ABA and won her bout in the Esker Cup.

Middleton St Mary’s Primary School tweeted about their visit to John Charles Centre for Sport to find out more about disabled sports including wheelchair basketball.

What’s the best word for a snog? That was just of the topics of debate at The Shine Project’s regular Monday session with girls from Cockburn School.

The South Leeds Live at Home scheme has put a big shout out for volunteers. They are needed for all sorts of roles: day trips, befriending and social activities. SLLaH promise you will be fully supported and trained.

Also based on Old Lane are the St Andrew’s Pantomime Group. They report that tickets for their production of Aladdin are selling fast.

And finally, if you’re still not sure what parkour is, do take a look at the video clips from Level Up Academy in Beeston.
