Love Your Neighbourhood: Southcoates area receives tidy-up treatment 

The Southcoates area of Hull is the latest to be tidied up as part of Hull City Council’s Love Your Neighbourhood project.  

Streets within the Southcoates 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 Monday 13 May to Friday 24 May, 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 Downing Grove, Clare Grove, Oriel Grove, Pembroke grove, Exeter Grove, St Johns Grove, College Grove, Merton Grove, Cambridge Grove, Wadham Grove, Merton Grove, and Keble Grove.   

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

Councillor Charles Quinn, Portfolio Holder for Environment, said: “I am delighted to see such a positive transformation take place within the Southcoates 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 a two-week period, 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.
