and then at

Work starting on Charing Cross Square

The renovation work on Charing Cross Square – outside Caring Together is starting today and is expected to last about 12 weeks.

The Before Picture

The plans involve resurfacing the square, adding trees and a new sign, putting steps at the front of the square to the pavement (near the bus stop) and changing the steps at the back of the square—taking away part of the large step area to create more space as you enter the square from the back and repairing the steps to make them safer.

We hope that, when finished, this will be a big improvement to this area, but it is bound to create some disruption in the short term. We have been promised that access to the shops and to Caring Together will be maintained throughout the works.

Here at Caring Together we have lots of activities happening over this time and we are intending to continue these as planned if we can. If you are planning to visit us, or attend an event/activity, and you have any concerns about it, please contact us.

‘Pre Light Night Get Together’

It was a great few weeks having a bit of fun getting ready for our mini ‘Light Night event’. We got to channel some of inner creativity. At the event itself we also got to enjoy some homemade chilli and jacket spuds and desert. The room looked wonderful with all the lighting and new glow in the dark additions not just on the tables either….

Caring Together AGM

We had the pleasure of welcoming a good number of our members, students from the Leeds University Union Music Impact in the Community, the Lord Mayor of Leeds and friends, Hilary Benn and some funders to our AGM Friday.

It is the first one in our premises! It was lovely, it was ended with some wonderful music followed by a cuppa and food.

Thank you everyone in the community for coming along and ‘Caring Together’, what a year.

Cinema@ Charing Cross

It was lovely to welcome members to our first film afternoon in our Charing Cross premises. Hot drinks and cake were on the menu, as well as popcorn and sweets.

The film was ‘Respect’ – The story of Aretha Franklin and seemed to be enjoyed by all, although it was a bit emotional at times.

The next one is on Thursday 16th November at 1pm (at Caring Together). We can’t tell you what the film is – you will have to come along to find out!
