New Friends of Hainsworth Park meeting to discuss pocket park

A second public meeting will this week discuss ideas for a proposed new pocket park for older children in Hainsworth Park.

Farsley residents last week met to form the Friends of Hainsworth Park group, which aims to improve the enjoyment of the park.

Organisers are encouraging people to come along if they want to get involved or have an opinion about Hainsworth Park they would like to share.

The meeting will be held at Farsley Community Church on Wednesday, June 5, from 7.30pm to 8.30pm.

Last week’s public meeting was an initial gathering looking at who wants to be involved with the Friends, how more opinions can be gathered on activities in the pocket park and its proposed location. Some concerns about noise and anti-social behaviour were expressed from those surrounding the parks.


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.
