Supporting safer communities in the Humber Region


High Sheriff out and about in Longhill


On Monday 22 February High Sheriff of the East Riding of Yorkshire Thomas Martin joined staff from Humberside Police, Humberside Fire and Rescue Service and Hull City Council on an iniative to make Longhill estate safer as part of an arson and anti-social behaviour awareness day. During the day staff from those services visited over 200 homes on the streets and roads near to the Eastmount Centre, Hull. The joint effort involved residents being given fire safety and crime prevention advice. Some residents had their homes fitted with smoke alarms and others had their property marked with UV pens so it can be identified if stolen. Residents were also helped to set up accounts so they can register valuables on-line. The Tribune Trust made a grant of £5,880 to Hull City Council in 2016 to support the provision of dedicated youth workers to encourage young people to engage in sport and leisure activities designed to deter them from misbehaving. Commenting on the visit Thomas Martin said; 'I was delighted to be able to join police, fire service and council staff and to see at first hand the tremendous effort they are all putting into making Longhill a safer and more pleasant place to live. I am pleased the Tribune Trust was able to assist them with a grant' The picture above shows Thomas Martin (centre) together with PC Clare Mitchell who helped organise the event and colleagues from the agencies involved.
