I know many of you will already be aware of our wonderful local Neighbourhood Network, OPAL (Older People’s Action in the Locality), who were formerly based at Holt Park in the shop units at the back of the mall but have in the last few years moved to the now beautifully renovated former Bedford Arms public house at 55 Bedford Drive. The link to their website is further below but I have put a few details below in blue.

OPAL would like to increase their membership. They are particularly looking for younger older people if that makes sense. If you are interested in being a member please do get in touch with them. Anyone over 60 living in the Leeds 16 postcode area above the Ring Road is eligible to join. The CEO is Ailsa Rhodes and they can be contacted on 0113 261 9103

Supporting older people to live happy, healthy, informed lives in their own homes.

OPAL is a registered charity which supports the over 60’s living in Cookridge, Ireland Wood, Tinshill, Holt Park, Adel and Bramhope – Leeds 16 above the Ring Road.

If you are over 60, and live in our area, you can become a full member of OPAL. If not, you may become an affiliated member. Affiliated members can access all our activities apart from home support and OPAL transport.

Full OPAL membership and affiliated OPAL membership costs £12 per year.

Our Drop In office is open 10am until 1pm Monday to Friday, so call in and see us. If you have an enquiry outside these hours please call on 0113 261 9103.
