In an effort to help Hull families cope with the cost of living this Christmas, Hull City Council is providing free parking in the city centre and funding to cut bus fares.
On Saturdays and Sundays throughout December, shoppers can park for free in the council’s multi-storey car parks on Osborne Street, Pryme Street, and George Street. There is no need to purchase a ticket.
For the first time since receiving charitable status, 360 Grassroots Foundation is accepting funding applications for grassroots sports in Hull.
Founded by 360 Chartered Accountants, the Foundation will offer financial assistance to families and caregivers of children in the HU1 to HU9 postcode areas who are struggling to pay for sports subscriptions, equipment, or travel.
Hull City Council’s Youth Enterprise and Micro Business Team is delighted to once again be partnering with Hull Culture and Leisure, the John Cracknell Youth Enterprise Bank and Engaging Education to celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week 2022.
Since it was founded 15 years ago, Global Entrepreneurship Week has celebrated and empowered entrepreneurs in every country and community – especially those who face barriers or have never considered starting a business.
Warm spaces are to open their doors in Hull for the first time. Hull city centre’s Jubilee Church, libraries, St Michael’s Youth Project, and Freedom Centre’s Community Trust will all be used as venues.
A warm space is a building where people are welcome to spend time and enjoy some company for free – some offer warm drinks as well.
Spurn Lightship will receive a new coat of paint as it nears completion.
Even today, river pilots are required to guide ships into and out of the Humber estuary, one of the most treacherous waters in the world. The Spurn Lightship played a key role in Hull’s maritime industries.
