Leep1 members have always enjoyed our ‘Out and About’ trips with Paul and since we’ve been closed everyone has really missed going on these mini adventures together.

Today Paul and Janine explored Leeds City Centre and The Leeds and Liverpool Canal with members Kalwant, Chris, Louise and Susan. They visited the Dark Arches and Granary Wharf before heading along the canal and waterways.

Our cities and canals have lots of wildlife and little ecosystems that have made our urban landscapes their home. As today is #Earthday we decided to visit this tranquil part of the city to appreciate the wildlife and water creatures that live here. Earth day is celebrated every year on April 22 to raise public awareness about the environment and inspire people to save and protect it. City wildlife spots are often forgotten about, but these green spaces are important to keep safe and protected too.

“I came to Leep1 office and saw Beckie outside the building and then I’ve been walking around Leeds and Liverpool Canal today with other Members of Leep1 and Paul and Janine along with a new student. They took us out for a walk in nice and sunny weather, then we went around Leeds City Centre and then back to the Leep1 office to finish off the session we had on today. I am feeling fine and okay
