RESIDENTS of Guiseley, Rawdon and Yeadon are invited to come to Aireborough Civic Society’s next Community Meeting to discuss and help plan how the community can make the area a better place to live.

The meeting takes place at Rawdon Community Library, Rawdon Crossroads on Tuesday, October 31st at 7.30pm. It is an opportunity to hear what Aireborough Civic Society has achieved and help plan the society's future priorities.

The Civic Society consists of volunteers who want to make a positive difference to the local environment.

Clive Woods, Chair, Aireborough Civic Society said: "Come along to our meeting on October 31 at Rawdon Library, find out what we do and bring your own ideas and concerns. We hope to have a Leeds City Councillor attending our meeting to update members and give advice.

"There is much to do - we are concerned about: Protecting our Green Belt; Improving local bus and train services after recent cuts this year; Our Conservation Areas and heritage buildings and their protection – update on Micklefield House (next to the park); Congestion on local roads, disruption from road works and parking problems; Litter spoiling our community; Improving local shopping areas; Planting flowers to make our centres more attractive – ACS put spring flowers and bulbs in Yeadon High Street last week; Planning matters - what is happening and suggesting improvements?"

The Society works with Aireborough Neighbourhood Forum and is part of the national organisation, Civic Voice. ACS is also affiliated to Leeds Civic Trust and the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE).
