Stunning snaps of the city captured by a local resource centre’s photography group have gone on show at Leeds Town Hall.

The photos, which depict various Leeds landmarks, have been put together by Mariners Resource Centre users.

The centre in Beeston supports people with a physical impairment or head injury and helps them live independently.

Places that feature in the exhibition include Kirkstall Abbey, Leeds Civic Hall and the famous clock on the city centre’s Dyson building.

Now the impressive pictures have taken pride of place in the town hall’s reception area.

Group member Bob Ward said: “It’s been a great opportunity being part of the photography project and all the hard work has paid off.

“I’d like to thank the staff at the centre for all their enthusiasm and support making this exhibition happen because it’s given the group a real confidence boost.”

Catherine Loftus, who works at the Mariners Resource Centre, said: “It has been so rewarding working with the group, planning and getting the exhibition up and running.

“The group had a real focus and were determined to reach their goal.”

Councillor Adam Ogilvie, Leeds City Council’s executive member for adult social care, said: “These fantastic photos not only show some of the beautiful sights our city has to offer, they’re also a real credit to the group at the Mariners Resource centre, who have used their talent and passion to create an exhibition they can all be very proud of.

“This creative project is typical of the type of innovative work that takes place at the centre.”
