Unwanted tradespeople and Cold Calling Control Zones – the Parish Council was recently contacted by a local resident who is very concerned about the increase in aggravated cold calling – visits by tradespeople to people living alone or vulnerable people in an attempt to persuade them to agree to work being carried out, often unnecessarily. Click the following link to read more about how to set up a Cold Calling Control Zone to tackle this problem.Cold calling


Alwoodley Book Event – the Alwoodley Book Event on 14th October was greatly enjoyed by all the children and parents who attended and we received some very positive feedback. We would like to thank everyone who participated – Susie Sparkles and her team, Jason Beresford, The Little Bookshop, Creation Station and our own Alwoodley WI.

The entertainment was fantastic and the craft activities first class. We have mentioned on several occasions – in last year’s newsletter, in articles and at our APM – that the Parish Council could not stage this event on a regular basis without volunteers from the wider community. One of our local Ward Councillors also wrote about this in his monthly article in North Leeds Life, but sadly nobody has come forward to offer any help and therefore we have decided that it is not feasible to repeat this event in the future.
