Today I met with the Armley neighbourhood policing team and Council Licensing Department to talk about Armley Town Street. On Saturday 4th July pubs, cafes and restaurants can re-open. Although we all welcome the return of some sort of normality, I urge people to behave responsibly. The virus is still out there in the community and people are still dying. Let’s not undo the good work we have done together to protect the NHS and save lives. I have also urged the police to ensure that anti-social behaviour is dealt with to keep us safe, and they have agreed with my request for extra police presence in Armley on Saturday.
Let’s show the best of Armley this weekend. The police work hard to protect us, and while we all want people to enjoy the easing of the lockdown restrictions, let’s make sure we look out for one another and stay safe. We don’t want anti-social behaviour in Armley or anywhere in our city.
Armley’s councillors Lou Cunningham, Jim McKenna and Alice Smart are working hard alongside the police and council to keep our community safe during in these difficult times.
You can always contact myself and your councillors to raise concerns:
