On Monday, 4th Aug, we had a full church at Adel for a Community WW1 Commemorative Service at 11am, led by Revd Ian White. Then in the afternoon, the church was full again for a moving performance of local WW1 letters, and poems & readings by community members and Revd White. This was followed by war grave walks around the 6-acre Adel Churchyard in the sunshine. In the evening we met up again with Revd White at 10pm at Adel Memorial Hall (next to the church) for a candlelit performance involving more people from Adel Sports & Social Club. We represented and remembered the 18 men (including Mark, Roger & William Draper, the 3 sons of Adel Rector William Draper) whose names are on the Adel WW1 Memorial, ending with a single candle burning at 11pm. We prayed for peace together and joined in singing ‘Keep the home fires burning’. The evening performance included these words written in the Adel Journal years ago:
‘if this world is to be made into a better place in which to live, it’s the type of spirit we see displayed so often in community work that will achieve it.

The six OAPs, who have an average age of 75, pledged to get the job done themselves as Leeds City Council highways bosses say they do not have to carry out repairs as it is an ‘unadopted’ road.
The neighbours from Crawshaw Gardens in Pudsey bought a tonne of Tarmac and some black tar sealant to maintain holes on their access. Armed with a heavy duty concrete garden roller, shovels, rakes and brushes they set to work yesterday.
David Horn, 77, who is married to Barbara, said: “We decided enough is enough. There has been much discussion with Leeds City Council over the years and although it is an unadopted road, we feel they could help us out.

Good news for Adel this week, very low crime figures reported and no burglary dwellings.
A theft occurred on Kingsley Avenue of some building materials from the driveway. This happened in the morning on 28/03/14 between 10:00-10:10am. It is really important to not leave anything unattended even for a few minutes.
A criminal damage has been reported on Mulberry View where the fence and panels have been damaged.
