Pudsey-based engineering firm Sayes and Co has been awarded a £102,000 contract to carry out priority maintenance work at Farsley Farfield Primary School.
The company, which has a base in Richardshaw Road and dates back to 1931, specialises in heating, plumbing and air conditioning.
A Leeds City Council report authorising the expenditure said the Farfield works were a priority and are part of a £6.7 million package of improvements funded by the local authority across the city. The report added:
“The works will also ensure that the council is complying with its legal responsibilities with regards to health and safety legislation and maintaining occupant safety.”
Work is due to start at the school on 24th July with completion by 30th August 2019.
The council report can be read in full here.
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.
