Good News and Bad

New gate at Greenshaw Terrace

Two things to report today,  one good, one not.  The good news,  is the first self closing gate has been fitted on the Greenshaw Terrace entrance, together with the door mat.

The other news, is that we have reported to the Council that the work they did on the Hillside end of Kelcliffe Lane before Christmas has left the bridle way in a worse condition than it was before.  Instead, of just a muddy lane,  we now have an even muddier ditch, full of lose rocks.   The land belongs to Kelcliffe Farm, however it is the Council footpath/bridle way department who have done the work.   Gerry Hill, who lives at Kelcliffe Farm has reported this to Ian Oxley, Enforcement Officer, Public Rights of Way, at Leeds Council,  as has Chris Parapia, from Friends of Parkinson’s Park.  For anyone else who wishes to complain Mr Oxley’s number is 0113 2375265 and his email is

UPDATE – 19th January – The Council have been to have a look at Kelcliffe Lane at the Hillside End.  They have agreed that it needs ‘stoning up’ and that this will be done ‘in the near future’.
