Increase of Graffiti in Holt Park

By Joel Beaumont
An outbreak of offensive graffiti has emerged in Holt Park.

The graffiti has been sprayed in the usual problem area, at the rear of the Holt Park Leisure Centre.

The graffiti, which contains sexual references and may offend many, is a cause for concern as it is near to public locations such as Kids Academy, Holt Park Library and Ralph Thoresby School.

Anyone visiting the area would not take interpret Holt Park with a positive first reaction.

The graffiti has been reported to Leeds City Council. However, due to the recent severe weather it is unlikely they will be able to respond with the high standard of service, of removing graffiti within 24 hours.

The Holt Park Tenants and Residents Association who do their best to maintain and promote the area are aggrieved by the offensive form of graffiti.

Alan Mann, Chair of the association said: “This type of graffiti has to be stamped out, and the perpetrators if located should be given restorative justice.”

If you see any graffiti in the local area and wish to report it for removal you can call the following number 0113 222 4406

by Joel Beaumont
As severe weather hits the UK, Holt Park has become buried in snow.

The earliest snowfall in 17 years brought chaos to much of the country and the North West of Leeds wasn’t spared.

With schools and businesses closed, Holt Park and surrounding areas ground to a halt at some points during the week.

However, the snow has produced picturesque scenes across the local area.
