Here’s a roundup of some the main events taking place over the coming week in South Leeds. For full listings go over to our What’s On calendar here.

The Volunteer Rangers will be carrying out jobs in Holbeck Cemetery, Beeston Road, on Saturday morning, 10am-12pm. Everyone’s welcome and tools are provided.

Hilary Benn holds two advice surgeries for constituents. Firstly at St George’s Community Hub in Middleton, 10-11:15am; and then at the Vale Circles centre on Tunstall Road in Beeston. Middleton Park Councillors will also be available at St George’s.

If you’re looking for help with any computing issues – phone, tablet or laptop – why not pop into Hunslet Community Hub on Saturday between 10am-1pm for the Digital Drop-In with The Tech Ladder.

There are coffee mornings from 10am on Saturday at St Andrew’s Methodist Church on Old Lane and St Mary’s Parish Centre on Town street, both in Beeston.

Touch is a dance performance involving parents and children. It’s on at 11am at The Holbeck and as always is pay what you decide, but book first to make sure you get a seat.

Print, Perform Present is a chance to buy direct and chat with new independent artists, publishers and performers based in Leeds and the North. It runs on both Saturday and Sunday 11am-4pm.

The Friends of Trentham Park hold their regular monthly meeting on Saturday at 1:30pm at Rowland Road Club in Beeston.

Leeds United entertain Huddersfield Town on Saturday, kick off 3pm. If you live near the ground you can expect traffic congestion before and after the match.

The Church of the Nazarene on Hunslet Hall Road are holding their monthly free community meal on Sunday from 12:30pm.

Hunslet RLFC kick off their League 1 season at 3pm on Sunday when they host North Wales Crusaders at South Leeds Stadium. As usual under 16s are free.

Beeston-born poet, Tony Harrison’s poem V is being performed at The Holbeck on Sunday evening at 7:30pm. Sparked by the vandalism he saw visiting his parents’ grave in Holbeck Cemetery in the early 1980s, it contains a lot of foul language as Harrison mixes his classical education with his Yorkshire roots. Pay as you decide, book online.

Code Club is a fun way to get your children (7-13) interested in computer coding. There are sessions this week on St George’s Community Hub, Middleton on Tuesday at 3:30pm and at Dewsbury Road Community Hub on Wednesday at 3:30pm.

The Toy Library pays its monthly visit to St George’s community hub in Middleton on Thursday, 11:15am-12:15pm. It works just like the book library and is brilliant if your budget’s tight or your children have a short attention span!

And finally the Heath and Heathcroft Tenants & Residents Association meets on Thursday at 7pm at Elland Road Police Station.
