Celebrate good times with your new-look #YEPleeds



Have your say

THERE are now just days to go until the revamped Yorkshire Evening Post hits the streets – and here’s how YOU can play a starring role in our new era.

We are introducing a wealth of fresh, exciting content in the redesigned paper to sit alongside our ever-popular existing range of stories and features.

One of the many additions to the pages of the YEP will be a Celebrations round-up, running every Saturday.

It will be packed with photos sent in by readers capturing special moments in their family lives that they want to share with the rest of Leeds.

Whatever the week’s occasion – be it a birthday, christening, wedding, graduation or reunion – we want to see and print your pictures.

The snaps don’t have to be professional quality, we’re simply looking for images that convey the spirit of a happy, memorable event.

To submit pictures for the new celebrations page CLICK HERE or by e-mail: yep.newsdesk@ypn.co.uk or tweeted to 

YEP managing editor Nicola Furbisher said: “We know that a newspaper is nothing without its readers and that’s why we want to play a part in their celebrations. We can’t wait for the pictures to start arriving!”

The new-style YEP will be published for the first time on Monday and will be lighter and easier-on-the-eye, cementing its place at the heart of life in upwardly-mobile Leeds.

To tie in with the revamp, we are assembling a team of volunteer correspondents who will compile weekly columns filled with grassroots news about their communities.

We’re particularly keen to sign up residents in Headingley, Beeston, Armley, Pudsey, Hunslet, Belle Isle and Cross Gates.

In a separate move, we are also searching for people interested in joining our reader panel.

The panel will provide us with feedback on the paper’s redesign and will be asked for their thoughts on topics in the headlines.

People who want to become community correspondents are asked to email steve.teale@jpress.co.uk.

Date: 23rd March 2017.
