It is utterly inexplicable that the EU waited until after the UK bids were submitted to rule them ineligible. Leeds shouldn't miss out on hosting European Capital of Culture just because of Brexit. I'm calling on European officials and the Government to take urgent action.

Great to see the new and improved Bramley Community Hub re-opened and to hear about all the wonderful benefits this will bring to our local community! The interior has been fully restored and the children's corner allows for a fantastic opportunity for the family to come down, with friendly staff who are at hand as always to help whenever needed.

The library is now open to the public and we will be holding a more formal opening on Thursday 2nd November at 2pm which is a great opportunity to come and see the Hub for yourself!
