Week 80: Lyndon

I live in Shipley, which is part of the fine Metropolitan District of Bradford. By day, I work in Leeds as a press officer; by night, I fight crime dressed as a weasel. It was meant to be a lynx, but I'm rubbish at needlework. The things I am good at (or at least not rubbish at) are: writing, climbing, outdoor stuff in general, cooking and (once upon a time) acting. I also like reading, live and recorded music, porcupines, kittens and history. And gin. And coffee.

Week 79: PP

The identity of PP needs to remain mysterious as he is the first Person of Leeds to be a child. He is 10 years old. PP was born on the 4th December 2002 in St James' Hospital, Leeds and has always lived in the Crossgates area of Leeds so is truly a person of Leeds. Currently, he attends Primary School and is a year 5. He has one of the busiest lives possible and every week goes to school, guitar lessons, tennis lessons, tutoring, Lifesaving classes and Cubs. At weekends he loves travelling around to interesting places like castles, historic houses, museums, art galleries, sporting events and music events. In between times he is a living legend on his mother's twitter (@HerLifeStory's). He is the only child @Gazpachodragon has ever admitted to liking. Recent favourite things are the Lord of the Rings novels, James Bond movies (particularly Skyfall) and BBC3's Craziest Fools. PP will be showing you Leeds from a child's perspective this week. Enjoy (and don't swear)

Week 78: Matthew

Oh yeah..... So its @mattyjamesb Hiya Leeds, I'm back. I was due to be PoL back in June of last year but I only went and moved to Sydney didn't I? The cheek of it! Anyway, back visiting for a month and the good Peeps of Leeds are finally letting me have my shot. Up until June '12 I'd lived in Leeds forever apart from four years in Sunderland and Newcastle so that was 27 of my then 31 years had been spent in my glorious home town (City, whatever). Given my move and that I'm also a year older that ratio has changed slightly, probably? What better person to be a PoL than a returning Yorkshire pom. Whats changed? Whats better, worse? Is there still a giant phallus made of tarmac near Dunelm Mill? I can't wait to find out! Oh, and I flaming love car sharing.

Week 77: Sarah

Hi, I'm Sarah & I'm 24. I am a fully fledged Leeds girl. I currently live in Armley but before that I lived in Pudsey. Since I have lived in Leeds for my whole life I want to get some new ideas of fun things for me to do when I actually have time off from work. I work for Wetherspoons in the city centre. I guess if it is sunny this week you will see how crazy it can be at my work. Looking forward to this experience :)
