Join the Friends of Hawksworth Wood group for a morning of litter picking, path maintenance and sprucing the area up on Saturday, 9 March.

Volunteers will meet at 10am at the Butcher Hill entrance (LS18 4HN) and will finish at approximately 1pm. All welcome to attend.

A group spokesperson said:

“If you’d like to come, please wear weather-appropriate clothes that you don’t mind getting a little muddy. Under-16s are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be supplied!”

For more information, contact Jonathan Dunster on or 07891 270864.


While you’re here…

Producing your daily dose of West Leeds Dispatch comes at a cost!

There’s the hosting of the website you’re reading now, running our popular e-mail newsletter, membership of independent press regulator Impress, attending summer events, paying for equipment etc etc.

We need at least £200 a month just to break even – that’s money currently coming out of the pockets of dedicated volunteers who are passionate about what’s happening in our communities, connecting you with local groups and organisations as well as holding decision-makers to account and championing local issues.

And all that’s BEFORE we even think about paying something for people’s time – for instance, our editor puts in more than 24 hours a week in his ‘spare’ time to ensure The Dispatch publishes daily.

To put it bluntly, after nearly four years of daily publishing, we are not sustainable!

And we need YOUR help to continue …

For the cost of less than a couple of cups of coffee you can help support local community news and continue to give our communities a voice by taking out a subscription for just £4 per month (that’s just a pound a week).

As a thanks you’ll get your name on a roll of honour on our website. More importantly you will be enabling us to keep bringing you the news that matters about your neighbourhood.

Achieving a bedrock of supporters will give us a firm financial footing and help us plan for the future.

Supporting us couldn’t be easier…

Over to you …
