Celebration to mark Kirkstall Valley Farm’s third birthday


By Rhian Williams

Join the celebration at Kirkstall Valley Farm’s third birthday party!

Celebrate three years of community-supported agriculture with Kirkstall Valley Farm on Saturday, 6 July from 3pm until late. The farm has been proudly providing fresh vegetables to nearly 100 families in Kirkstall every single week and are excited to share this milestone with you!

This year volunteers have been raising funds to support a new trainee grower position and people are invited to help the farm grow by celebrating with them.

From 3-6pm, enjoy a family-friendly atmosphere with various stalls, craft activities, and play equipment for the children. Relax with some tea and cake while enjoying live poetry readings and musical performances, all in an alcohol-free setting.

As the evening progresses, delicious home-cooked meals will be available to buy. The bar will open at 6pm, featuring a range of drinks along with stalls selling unique crafts, preserves, and birthday cake. Don’t miss out on Kirkstall’s finest musical talents, including live bands and a DJ to dance the night away. Stay tuned for more info regarding music…

Tickets are £6 for adults, £2 for children, and free for under fives. Kirkstall Valley Development trust strives for inclusivity so free and pay-it-forward tickets are available ensuring that everyone can join the celebration, regardless of financial circumstances.

Please support independent community led journalism in West Leeds…

This week is Indie News Week – a rallying cry to give independent local journalism a chance not just to survive but to thrive. Our work is all about you. And the people who live alongside you in West Leeds.

We shine a light on council decision-making, tell stories about people achieving fantastic things and connect you to local activities, groups, organisations and events.

The economic environment is tough for independent journalism and we are fighting for survival. In today’s world of misinformation, disinformation, secrecy and mistrust, public-interest reporting is vital. As the organisers of Indie News Week point out, when independent news providers are forced to close down “it means that you know less, understand less and can do less”.

So the message of Indie News Week is ‘no news is bad news’. And we’re proud to be working alongside more than 40 other newsrooms across the UK to highlight the critical role that independent, local news plays in a transparent and functioning democracy.

If you value what we do, this is a fantastic moment to step forward and support as by joining our amazing supporters who donate £5 or £10 a month. Click here for more. If you’d like to pay by standing order (or pay any amount you wish, including one offs) please e-mail accounts@westleedsdispatch.com.

Thanks you – John Baron, editor.
