A popular volunteer-run tea room at a Leeds beauty spot is looking for new helpers.

The Washburn Heritage Centre in Fewston attracts walkers visiting nearby Swinsty Reservoir, and serves light lunches and home-made cakes and biscuits.

Volunteer Cynthia said: “I am enjoying being part of the friendly team.

“All sorts of visitors find us and are impressed by the hidden history of the valley, and of course the delicious baking.”

The tea room, which also hosts its own exhibitions, opens on Saturdays and Sundays in summer and on Sundays from November-March.

Contact the centre on 01943 880794 or email if you would like to get involved.
