Leeds today: protest, demolition, craft and restaurants.

Morning everyone! Elly here with today’s BGL roundup, which includes lots of shouting.

To prepare you for the shouting, first of all here’s Leeds Grub’s great review of LiveBait, the overhauled fish restaurant.

Richard Smyth on My Life in Leeds has a roundup of how and where to discover hidden and abandoned Leeds – air raid shelters and gargoyles abound!

The Guardian Northerner blog has a piece on the case for making Liverpool an eco-friendly and environmentally-sustainable city.

Today, at Flatts and Eastborough Children’s Centre, Dewsbury, families can take part in craft activities to make a giant patchwork quilt to mark International Women’s Day this Thursday 8th March – more details over on the YEP.

Also on the Guardian Northerner, a piece on protests by workers in Manchester protesting against the government’s Workfare scheme.

More video this time, with the BBC putting together a great piece on Ginetta, the motorsport manufacturer, one of West Yorkshire’s fastest growing companies.

Radio Aire and Create have teamed up to offer a Mother’s Day treat for a lucky winner of their competition – find out more over on Radio Aire’s site.

The Culture Vulture has a piece on 4 x 4 Making Places, a four day conference/festival/meet discussing the numbers behind places.

And finally, over on the BBC, protestors in Huddersfield marched against plans to build significant numbers of new houses on green-belt land.
