The Hull Liberal Democrat group can reveal that as of Thursday 13th August work will commence on the "wasteful" Guildhall gates.
Despite the pandemic and pressure pilling on the Council's finances, the Labour administration is set to press ahead regardless with expensive gates to protect the councillor car park at the Guildhall.
The Liberal Democrat group have long called to scrap this "unnecessary elitism" and give the money back to local communities who have been left behind for a decade.
West Hull Lib Dem councillors Alison Collinson, Jack Haines and Maria Coward have been informed by the Council that there are due to be lengthy road closures on Calvert Lane in the next two months - and want to make sure residents are aware.
Deputy Leader of the Lib Dems on Hull City Council's opposition group has today written to the three Hull MPs in a bid to build a broad church of support to save Hull's threatened nightlife and culture economies.
This comes in light of the group launching a "Save Our Culture" campaign last week which has generated hundreds of signatures from Hull's residents. The Group's Shadow Culture Portfolio Holder also called on the Government Minister for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport Oliver Dowden MP to make an intervention after the "culture shock" that involved the closures of Hull Box Office, The Welly Club and Polar Bear.
Hull Liberal Democrats Statement on Hull Pride 2020.
Hull Liberal Democrats celebrate Pride proudly in Hull every year.
It is a time when the LGBT+ community can come together and celebrate how far we’ve come but continue our protest to fight for justice and equality.
It was received with much sadness that this year the Pride parade in Hull was cancelled. It was completely understandable and the right thing to do in the wake of the Coronavirus and in the best interests of Public Health.
But that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate in another way. Pride in Hull have worked hard to put on a virtual 'stay at home and celebrate Pride in Hull' set of events, we encourage those that want to celebrate to check out their Facebook Page for event details here: https://www.facebook.com/prideinhull/
Love is never wrong: See you at the virtual celebrations!
