Leadgate Village website

has been set up to provide local people with an interactive notice board everyone can use.  We would like you to make this website your first port of call to post local news, events, have discussions and find out local information about your area.

The Best Experience Ever

Upstairs, God Willing, Leadgate has some negatives but it is superseded by many positives, the main positive being its people, it’s Community, steeped in its history, but always looking positively forward to a fresh and better future, by providing excellent education, progressive development for our children, always supported by the residents and community of LEADGATE.
