Armley Town Street became a bustling community hotspot at the recent Armley Spring Market.
Special guests Bob the butterfly and Gerry the gerbera proved very popular for the photo opportunities and impromptu singing!
Armley Town Street was vibrant with the yarn-bombing efforts of the Hookers and Clickers group. And community group Root, Shoot, Bloom, Fruit hosted a micro-green planting workshop using recycled containers.
There was a fantastic line-up of makers and artists, as well as a huge range of food delights and delectations.
The event was funded by the Welcome Back Fund (WBF)/European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) with support from Leeds City Council and organised by the Armley Action Team.
