Residents in Armley are being urged to help clean-up Armley Moor following the departure of a small traveller encampment this week.

The clean-up has been organised by volunteers from the Armley Common Right Trust (ACRT) and will take place on the Moor on Sunday, 11am-1pm.

Philip Cave, from ACRT, said: “We’ve had travellers on Armley Moor and they’ve just left, but there’s a lot of cleaning up to do before the Armley Action Team can install the Playbox for kids’ games, activities and events over the summer holiday and leading up to the festival.

“We’ll provide pickers and bin bags, and we’ll lay on tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits.”

The Trust looks after six pieces of land on behalf of the people of Armley: the Moor, Far Fold, Moor Top, Charlie Cake Park and Hill Top. A further portion of land in Ley Lane was leased by Leeds City Council in the 1960s on a 99-year lease. More details here.
