I’ve become an enthusiastic visitor of Leeds Community Clothes Exchange since I first attended in September last year. As part of my quest to reduce my carbon footprint and create a fairer world, it’s great that I’ve been able to revamp my wardrobe in this way. It’s also a lot cheaper to pay the £3 entry and swap clothes I no longer wear for ones a really want to!
Anyway, whilst wandering through Woodhouse, a rather down-at-heel part of Leeds, where the Exchange is held, I found the church we did a practice base map at on the first week of the PDC. Next to it was a play ground where my daughter was the only child playing. It was sunny and 13 degrees, so I was particularly saddened that the place seemed so desolate.
On the other hand, I was pleased to be able to take a photo, at last, of the building featured below, which I have passed many a time on my way to and from work. Woodhouse may have its problems but it’s also a place where lots of interesting stuff is going on and there are people with a sense of fun and imagination.
I gave up trying to dismantle the house, once I’d got the roof off. Just as well it has had a reprieve and will be staying with me for a while longer, considering its next owner might prefer it flat to take away. On the other hand, I’m not sure my winter veg enjoyed it being walked all over them…. In the above photo, it was having a rest on some onions.
But at last, it was in the spot where the greenhouse stood last year
