South Leeds Roundup: Poems, partnerships and playdays

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 on the quarry steps down from Noster Terrace where Phil Pearce has been performing his poem ‘Beeston Life.’ You can watch his YouTube video remembering days gone by in his corner of South Leeds.

If you’re looking to have a stall at this year’s Beeston Festival, bookings are now open and you can download a form from their website. The festival takes place on 15 July 2017.

Partnerships are very important to SLATE. They have news of a link up with Reed to help people back into work and a visit to another social enterprise, Paperworks.

If you want to know what the kids are up to at DAZL‘s half term camp, head over to their Facebook page and check out the photo album.

Best team name ever? ‘Nerf Wars’ down at the Level Up Academy was won by the “Darkfarters.” A brave camera man posted video footage.

A number of local primary schools went along to Middleton Leisure Centre last week to try a taste of tennis. The centre is starting a tennis coaching class for 5-9 year olds on a Wednesday: sign up now!

It was Playday today at Cottingley Community Centre. Wayne from the One Stop Centre and Suleem from Money Buddies were on hand to judge the best heart competition and award the prizes.

And finally, hats off to those hardy members of Holbeck in Bloom who braved the atrocious weather on Saturday to do some clearing and planting on the Tilburys.
