Photographer Simon Cullingworth captures Bramley Breezers‘ medal Monday on camera – and celebrates the achievements of the running group’s members.

The Breezers are a friendly lot and meet on a Monday and Wednesday evening at the Bramley Villagers Community Club on Broad Lane in Bramley at 6.50pm.

And a reminder that Bramley parkrun returns for the first time since early January at 9am on Saturday. The popular weekly community run in Bramley Park has been sidelined so the council could remove asbestos and refurbish the park changing rooms.

Both the Bramley 5k and Bramley Junior parkrun events have been cancelled since 2nd January 2019, with work originally expected to last four weeks.

The popular event regularly attracts 200 runners in Bramley Park each Saturday morning.


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.
