Hull council restore the Artic Corsair and excavate the docks at St Andrews quay in memory of the fisherman of Hull

Responsible department: Department for Culture, Media and Sport


This is a petition to insist that the Artic Corsair is restored back to its former glory. St Andrews Dock in Hull used to probably be one of the busiest fish docks in the country. It has just been left to rot. Considering Hull is now the city of culture it is sad to see that such an important and historical place has just been left like an old graveyard. This is so disrespectful to the many families in hull who lost loved ones at sea. A proper memorial and redevelopment of this area needs to happen.

Hi,

Have signed the e-petition and hope many others do too.
I was brought up in South Boulevard from the late fifties and still remember how fish dock was in those days. It was a thriving industry for the local community and surrounding areas.
Its a pitifull sight to see the state the docks are in these days. Many trawlermen lost their lives over the years and not only the immediate families but the whole community felt the loss of these brave fishermen who were lost at sea.
The fishing industry in Hull played an important part in many peoples lives spanning decades and its a very important part of our heritage.
As an ex-fisherman i hope this petition gets the attention and recognition it deserves.

Regards - John
