On Spring Bank Holiday Monday, May 26th 2014, Bernard Atha, retiring Labour Councillor for Kirkstall ward and Fiona Venner, the newly elected Labour Councillor for Kirkstall ward, ceremoniously cut the garland of toilet paper (with garden shears of course!) across the door of the newly constructed composting toilet on the Church Lane allotment site, just off Queenswood Drive, Kirkstall.
Bernard Atha – a member of Adel and Wharfedale and Leeds NW Labour Party – retired this year after 57 years of service to the city. This was one of Bernard’s last engagements as a Councillor – and Fiona’s first.
