Leeds today: bus lanes, fundraisers, social media and what’s on

Good morning, people of Leeds. Here’s what’s going on across town as we head at long last into the weekend.

First up is the news that bus lane cameras are set to be rolled out across the city to curb drivers abusing the system in the city centre. The scheme, launched in August 2011, has seen a fall in offences by over 80%.

Voting has begun in a contest to find Yorkshire’s most dedicated fundraisers. 11 finalists have been chosen as part of the competition, organised by Motors.co.uk, to find the most deserving carer or charity fundraiser in the country.

The faintest promise of spring was in the air yesterday, as March began with a burst of sunshine. Hebe Media look back to another great month, with a selection of shots showing what they’ve been up to throughout February.

The Culture Vulture meanwhile looks ahead to another incredible month in the city.

South Leeds Life has details of an interesting social media surgery at the Round Foundry Media Centre later in March.

And finally if you’re looking for something to enjoy a little sooner, then this weekend the neo-gothic surroundings of Left Bank Leeds offers the chance to see Dreyer’s Vampyr, with a new score written by Steven Severin of Siouxsie and Banshees fame accompanying the film live this Sunday.

That’s all until next week. Make it a great one.
