As Chapeltown poet, Pauline Jones said in a poem written specially for Leeds Tenants Federation: “ You know we all still have to live, so many different cultures, have so much to give. Do you know your neighbour’s culture? Well it all starts here today, as Leeds Tenants Federation brings communities together in such a unique way”.
