Week Sixteen: Romy

I'm Romy and I'm looking forward to telling you about Leeds in words, pictures and maybe a video or two if you're lucky. Tweet me if you have any Leeds related questions!

Twelve years ago I packed up my bag, grabbed my Yorkshire phrasebook and made the long journey across the pennines from Stockport. I bagged myself a Leeds lad and have been here ever since.

I love eating well and keeping active - I play football for Middleton Park FC, I go running in Leeds' many green spaces and I love to shop at Leeds Kirkgate Market, where I usually get some cooking tips thrown in by the traders.

In short, I'm a northern girl, living a typical life in a great Yorkshire city. Welcome to My Leeds....

Week Fifteen: Ben

I'm Ben and I am from Leeds. 
Having only left the LS postcode a few years ago to study around the rest of the civilised world (South and North Yorkshire), I'm now back in and around Leeds and make a daily pilgrimage twelve minutes up the train track into the centre. 
I work at a law firm which prides itself on its Leeds roots and spend most evenings around the city centre too.
I think you'll all agree that while the previous fourteen people have all been excellent, what this account needs is a bit more organisation. So each morning I'll be posting my daily itinerary.
As that really is how dull I am, watch out for some follower participation scheduled for later in my week, plus a special guest appearance on Wednesday from a former Person Of Leeds.
Hmm, now, did I spell that day right...?

Week Fourteen: Steve

I'm from Cardiff, but moved to Leeds in 2000 for no particular reason and have lived + worked here since. I've lived in Burley for the past six years and worked a range of jobs across, but currently work for a marketing agency in Roundhay. Outside the office, I do vocals in a band called 'antares', and spend the rest of my social time either going to local gigs, hanging with friends or other fun distractions. I walk half my commute and bus the other half (working off the Xmas belly!), and do lots of home-cooking which can often end up on Twitter!

Week 13: Lianne

From Monday to Thursday, my name will be Lianne Marie Binks but like any good superhero I will be changing my name for the weekend to Lianne Marie Mease. OK so I’m not a superhero, I’m just getting married on Friday.

I work at QA Ltd (@QATraining) in LS1 but live in LS9 and am a marketing communications specialist so creating email and social media campaigns are what I do on a day-to-day basis. I tweet throughout every hour of the day that I’m awake (including my own wedding as you will see on Friday) and when I’m not promoting QA, I’m usually promoting my food blog Everything Goes With Toast.

My tweets will probably involve exciting nuggets about ladders in my tights and the world of Leeds as seen from the perspective of my bicycle Tallulahbelle.

Week Twelve: Jennie

My name is Jennie and I am a twitter addict.  There, I said it (first step to recovery apparently). 

I live just on the outskirts of the city centre which means I can get out to the bars and restaurants and shops far too frequently!  I’ve been living in my little flat 18 months and although I’ve lived in Leeds for nearly six years, I’m still finding lots of new things to see and do.

Although I live in Leeds I actually work in Bradford in a marketing department so during my week you’ll get to join me for the highs and lows of public transport and Leeds train station (where I seem to spend far too much time), the odd marketing related tweet and a few tweets about the charity I volunteer for. At the end of the week I’ll hopefully be tweeting from the legendary Courtyard Party which is held on each of the bank holiday weekends through the summer.  I might even have chance to go the museum or the art gallery or Roundhay Park or Tropical World or the Armouries or Kirkstall Abbey or ......... See, told you there was lots to see and do!
