Hello everyone. Hope you’re enjoying our new-look blog. We’re still working on some bits and bats, so bear with us as we get on our feet (it’s been, ‘ahem’, an ‘interesting’ experience moving to our new platform, but we hope you like it!

Here’s your regular weekly round-up of what’s making South Leeds tick…

The good folks at Holbeck in Bloom have posted photos on Facebook of their bulb-planting escapades at the side of Holbeck Moor over the weekend. The moor should be a more colourful place next spring! One of the photos is above – well done all!

There’s a Cottingley TRAC meeting at Cottingley Primary School at 7pm tonight to discuss local issues – be there is you live on the Cottingley Hall estate!

Drop in at Aire Valley Homes mobile office on Tuesday 13th November outside the Hamara Centre, Tempest Road, Beeston between 10am and 2pm to talk to Aire Valley Homes and Holbeck NPT Officers about safety in your home and neighbourhood.  More details on Facebook.

The YEP touches on a story we’ve been following extensively for some time – yep, it’s those blooming supermarket plans for Old Lane in Beeston. And hundreds of elderly people in Belle Isle have been given a place to reminisce over the winter months.

There’s some lovely photos of the Middleton Park bonfire over on Flickr. And the Friends of Middleton Park have posted on Facebook about some unsavoury firework incidents in the park over the past week.
