Week 46: Jeremy

Hi my name is Jeremy Morton and I live in Beeston, South Leeds. 

I've lived in Beeston since 1984 and am involved in various local projects such as Beeston Festival, as a governor at New Bewerley Community School, as treasurer of Leeds CISV and as a founding contributor to the South Leeds Life blog. Basically, I'm a local busybody. My aim is to tell you something about these and other wonders of this unfashionable part of town.

I have two grown up children, one at university and one back at home. Having worked in community development, housing and regeneration for thirty years, I am currently out of work and looking for a new direction.

Week 45: James

James, husband, student administrator, recently moved to Kirkstall, two years in Leeds, cultural and community activist with On The Edge Leeds, too infrequently creative, book reader, film watcher, gig goer, postcard collector, like sharing ideas and information, let's live it large because we're only old once, let's make a difference. Most likely to have a song going through my head.

My last tattoo said 'Get the girl, kill the baddies, save the entire planet. My next one will be Batman and Usagi Yojimbo preparing to fight off barbarian hordes.

What to expect this week? #Leedsletters on Tuesday (Dock Street Market, 7pm, you coming?), a meal out on Wednesday and my birthday, and more. Obviously, my views and opinions are my own and may not reflect those of others.

Week 44: Tim

Some people call me Toadee or Realtoadee (because I am) but my real name is Tim. You can actually call me whatever you like because I have amazingly thick skin.

I've lived in Leeds almost all my life (which is rather a long time) and I currently reside in Rothwell which never really wanted to be part of Leeds but there you go! I'm hoping that I'll be able to give some sense of recent history as I tweet but I'm not promising because I have a very changable mind and I really do have difficulty focusing on a task.

I do hope that my tweeting doesn't upset anyone but if it does please tell me and I'll crawl into a hole.

Week 43: Rob

Rob is a bachelor living in the trendy part of the city centre, who moved to Leeds for university 15 years ago and never left. He is fond of the architecture of Leeds, enjoys a pint in proper Leeds pubs,  likes getting into the loins, and will be spending his week at the Leeds International Film Festival. He's also an expert of Transformers (the proper 80s ones, not the Michael Bay ones)
