Summer fun for young people in Belle Isle and Hunslet Moor

Young people are invited to come along and enjoy free activities and inflatables in their local green spaces, hosted by the Youth Service, and supported by the Inner South Community Committee.

Two summer events are taking place in South Leeds in the coming weeks, continuing a packed programme of summer activities. First up, on Tuesday 8 August 2023, 12–3pm on Hunslet Moor, with another event the following week, Tuesday 15 August, 12-3pm, at Parkside Field, Belle Isle.

Local Councillors have welcomed these community events which are supported by Well-Being Funding from the Inner South Community Committee.

Councillor Mohammed Iqbal, (Labour, Hunslet and Riverside) Chair of the Community Committee said;

“Our local youth service are putting on some fabulous events in our parks across Inner South Leeds, and I’m delighted that the Community Committee has been able to provide funding to support them.

“It is great to be investing in the wellbeing of our young people, offering them positive activities during the school summer holidays.”

Councillor Sharon Burke (Labour, Middleton Park) added;

“It is really welcome to have these safe and engaging events on our doorstep and in our local parks and greenspaces. They’re a great opportunity for young people to come together and get active outdoors.

“These events are always popular, and I’m looking forward to local young people enjoying the free activities and having some summer fun!”
