Newington and Gipsyville area receive tidy-up treatment

Newington and Gipsyville is the latest area to be supported by Hull City Council’s Love Your Neighbourhood project.

Streets within the Newington and Gipsyville area are now basking in the glow of a much-needed makeover, thanks to Hull City Council’s ambitious Love Your Neighbourhood initiative.

As part of the citywide project, several streets within the area underwent a comprehensive tidy-up, between Wednesday 29 May and Friday 7 June, leaving the streets transformed and residents with a renewed sense of pride in their community.

During this period, the team carried out a range of clear-up tasks, including grass verge edging, grounds maintenance, and street cleaning.

The streets included were Midway Grove, Hayton Grove, Seaton Grove, Coxwold Grove, Norton Grove, Wistow Grove, and Rawcliffe Grove.

Residents have praised the work of the team and the difference they have seen in the look and feel of their neighbourhood.

Doug Sharp, head of street cleansing and waste management at Hull City Council, said: “I am delighted to see such a positive transformation take place within the Newington and Gipsyville area.

“The tidy-up efforts have not only made the neighbourhood more appealing, but it has also brought the community together – with residents telling us how delighted they are with the work carried out.

“As well as caring for the environment, this project is about investing in local communities to bring them up to scratch, creating areas that people can feel proud about living in. It is very much a programme for the whole city.”

Love Your Neighbourhood is the council’s new tidy-up programme, which will tackle small areas of the city one at a time.

The team will tidy each area over two weeks, after which residents should see a noticeable difference in the look and feel of their neighbourhood.

The Love Your Neighbourhood team will continue its journey across Hull, tackling one area after another.
