It's been a very sad week following the passing of Queen Elizabeth II. I think Councillor Christine Randall, Lord Mayor of Kingston upon Hull and Admiral of the Humber, said it best in her statement: “Her Majesty carried out her duties with distinction across the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth and we were honoured to welcome her to the city". The full statement, and a statement from James Dick, Lord-Lieutenant of the East Riding of Yorkshire, can be found below.

When I moved to Hull, I decided to take myself on a small excursion into the city centre and was immediately captured by its fascinating history and ever-curious present. Happily, I can now call the city centre my home and, fortunately, bear witness to many of its delights which include the Trinity Market, Hepworth Arcade, Marina, City Hall, and Old Town amongst many others. I hope that in this article, I can elucidate these delights and do this charming centre-piece of Hull justice with my words.
I am often told that I came to Hull at a peculiar time; I moved here in 2017 during the City of Culture year and have seen our city change considerably since. In a sense, my time here has been marked by continuous development—most of which has been positive—and that continues to be the case today; everywhere I go in Hull and indeed the East Riding, I am met by extensive construction works which leads me to believe that progress is happening everywhere.
In that spirit, this article discusses seven developments coming soon in Hull and East Yorkshire.
