Welcome to the ‘LCA Autumn Newsletter 2021’
We would like to extend a warm welcome to all the new members who have joined us recently and we look forward to meeting you soon. Although at times it has been difficult this year to run events with the lock-down period, rules over social distancing and especially the tragic loss of Carol Ann Downing our Co-Founder and LCA Project Co-ordinator, which left a big hole in our arts community, we have done our best to keep as many events running as possible and will continue to do so.
Carol had been the guiding light of Leeds Combined Arts since the early days in the smaller Headingley Community Centre days in the early 2000s. Her enthusiasm for all the arts was astounding, from theatre and cultural excursions to poetry and the visual arts. She instituted a regular Mind, Body and Spirit group which introduced our members to many new concepts. Her energy and drive made LCA what it is and she will be sorely missed.
