Local residents from Woodville Square, Belle Isle, celebrated a recent street makeover with a summer tea party.
Families enjoyed the sunshine, cupcakes and fun activities from face-painting to a mosaic making workshop. The tea party was held to celebrate recent work done by Leeds Federated to improve the environment of Woodville Square. In response to concerns raised by residents about security, alley gates have been installed to prevent the Square being used as a thoroughfare. New fencing has been put up and the area has been landscaped to create a pleasant outdoor space.
Many households got on board with the tidy up by entering a Leeds Federated garden competition with top prizes worth £150 sponsored by landscaping contractor Horticon.
Georgina Nijar, Leeds Federated’s Planned Improvement Works Manager said:
We want our homes and neighbourhoods to be places people want to live and move to. The boundary walls and paving at Woodville was looking tired and needed repairing. We have invested in the area to improve it for our customers and the local community and the changes have been welcomed by residents.”
Cath Nelson, Leeds Federated’s Neighbourhood Initiatives Co-ordinator said:
It was great to see people enjoying the tea party and the new look Woodville Square. Many residents have also made their own own contribution to keep the area looking lovely by taking part in the garden competition. It has been a fantastic community effort.”
