Week 58: Vicki

Hi, I'm Vicki. I'm 21 and I'm a fourth (and final) year student at Leeds Uni. I also work part time helping students find houses.

I have lived in Clarence Dock, Burley and now Woodhouse. I spend most of my time in Leeds around the city centre so I'm looking forward to exploring in my week as a person of Leeds :) I will sadly be leaving Leeds in May so I want to see as much as possible of this great city before I go.

In my spare time I go to gigs, the cinema, the gym.. All the usual things! Expect lots of tweets about coffee shops, cakes and cocktails.

Week 57: Laura

Hi, I’m Laura. I’m 26 and proud to be Leeds born and bred!

I currently reside in Armley, on the voted most friendly street in Leeds, so I’m told by my awesome neighbours and originally from Garforth.

I’ve recently graduated with an art degree and I work at the Cuthbert Brodrick pub as a manager, whilst also running the art project Papergirl Leeds and collectively organising the upcoming Ladyfest Leeds – I like to keep myself busy!

In my ever-dwindling spare time I’m a bit of a film geek and like nothing more that chilling out with a home cooked meal and a movie (generally multi-tasking by doing some knitting/crochet at the same time). I also love checking out local gigs and exhibitions or just socialising with friends, drinking and eating :)

As my week as PoL I’ll be trying to have as many mini adventures as possible and checking out all the places I’ve not yet visited. One of my New Year’s resolutions was to not buy any new clothes; to either make my own or thrift garments, so I’ll be going on a charity shoppers expedition to seek out bargains near and far – suggestions are welcome! It's also the week before my birthday and I have the week off work so you'll be included in all the celebrations!

Week 56: Jess

I live in Burley, work in Keighley and am a librarian at a local FE college. I also run the Travelling Suitcase Library. I won't tweet about work, because I'm not allowed, but will probably be tweeting about the various events I go to, beer and the best places to drink in Leeds, telly, and books!
