If it’s happening in Leeds, it’s in your new look YEP

Have your say

CLUBS, bars, restaurants, gigs, exhibitions – life moves pretty fast in modern-day Leeds.

So it’s perhaps just as well that your new-style Yorkshire Evening Post will be doing its utmost to guide you through the city’s current social whirl.

The relaunched paper will include a weekly section called Thank God It’s Friday, dedicated to the booming entertainment and nightlife scene of Yorkshire’s unofficial capital.

Two TGIF pages will be given over to City Buzz, a look at what’s hip and happening in Leeds penned by our very own girl about town Juliette Bains.

We will also be providing an indispensable round-up of the best things to do and the top places to visit over each forthcoming weekend.

There will be plenty of opportunities, too, for readers to recommend their favoured eating, drinking and partying hang-outs.

TGIF will also be the new home for the YEP’s ever-popular Oliver, Little Oliver and Barfly restaurant and bar reviews.

YEP managing editor Nicola Furbisher said: “We’re all aware that Leeds is one of the best places to live in the UK.

“We want to ensure our readers know exactly how to make the most of what there is on offer here.”

Coming out for the first time on Monday, the redesigned YEP will have a bright look and feel in keeping with its position at the heart of life in 21st century Leeds.

As part of the revamp, we are putting together a team of volunteer correspondents who will compile weekly columns packed 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 and will from time to time be asked for their thoughts on topics in the headlines.

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