MP meets Horsforth's Leeds Trinity University bosses
10:00am Tuesday 22nd October 2013 in Local news
An MP has met with bosses from Leeds Trinity University to discuss how it can continue to be an integral part of the community.
Stuart Andrew, MP for Pudsey, Horsforth and Aireborough, met vice-chancellor Professor Margaret House, along with Professor Ray Lloyd and chief operating officer Howard Nelson.
Leeds Trinity was granted full university status last year. Its alumni include ITN political correspondent Chris Ship, writer and broadcaster Gervase Phinn, former Irish presidential candidate Mary Davis and performers such as Girl’s Aloud singer Kimberley Walsh and the Kaiser Chief’s Nick Hodgson.
The university is now looking to continue and broaden its tradition of using its facilities and expertise to be part of the Horsforth community and surrounding areas.
Mr Andrew said: “I am honoured that such a great institution is a part of my constituency. Leeds Trinity University has long been a focal point of Horsforth in which many local people have attended.
“Leeds Trinity became our city’s third university last year and as well as continuing to educate many from our city, their appeal has now vastly broadened, with increasing numbers of students from all over the country applying every summer.”
