Keith Hunter Interview by in Christchurch Community Coffee

PCC Candidate Keith Hunter would be pleased to help you with your enquiries!

He will be publicly accountable to each and all of of us as if elected as our representative commissioning the police

We’d like to have also quizzed him about traffic management including pedestrian cyclist and road safety, given the speed restrictions and limited cycle paths and  also given the serious road accidents we’ve had just in the last couple of days including Eppleworth/Raywell (Thursday) and yesterday (Friday) in Spring Bank in Hull days just after the interview.

Serious crime including gun-carrying appears to be mainly limited to West Yorkshire, with a few exceptions

PS: If the other candidates would like to contact us at on facebook to book an interview, please do so ASAP. We’ve also sent invitations.

Flu and cold: the Grim Reaper of our Old!

Lotions and Potions

If you know someone old,

who has a cough and is cold,

they might also have flu,

so help them keep warm,

and drink plenty of fluids,

to stave off those druids!

And let their doctor know too!

And let Covonia take the strain,

of their stoical old-moania,

before it turns into pneumonia!

Cottingham Civic Hall, 6th. Feb

Today in the Cottingham Civic Hall: Admission just 50p!

On the lookout for Marine Art

The editor’s favourites:  marine oil paintings! (UK Royal Society of Marine Artists)

East Yorkshire’s Marine Artists

“Catch me if you can” Contemporary Artist Adrian C. Rigby (sold for $25,000)

Had the editor the resources, he would cover his walls with original, antique, contemporary, 20th Century, classical and naive marine oil paintings. They are however quite valuable now and over the last few decades at least  highly collectible both Nationally and internationally!

Note: it’s a “Bears Market” for art collectors currently so now’s your chance to snap up some potential longer-term investments!

The editor settles for stamps and prints instead – which for all intents and purposes fulfill his interest as an art ethusiast rather than a collector for investment reasons

First Day Editions Stamp Collection

The Editor also wanted to recover his lost “first editions” stamp collection he started with his mother’s assistance from the age of about 8, as collected over his teenage years from the Hull Stamp Shop, then located on the top of Princess Avenue near the junction with Spring Bank. A sample above which he bought today which he is thinking of mounting in a picture frame.

Many of the stamps are worth little more than they were bought for some 50 years on taking inflation into account, but stamp collections are considered as a very long term investment and the market may turn eventually.. but look out for the rare Victoria “Penny Black”!

There are a number of societies catering for local art and collectors in the region including NADFAS, Hull & East Riding Antiques & Fine Arts Society – and the Myton Gallery in Hiull’s Silver Street Arcade is difietely worth a visit for collectors of marine art and the history of marine art in the region!



Weather break makes life easier for stallholders

A successful day for February was reported by traders.

The weather makes all the difference to trade and the persistent cold high winds we’ve had recently have made the stallholders task almost impossible

Traders get together to make a presence on facebook!
