EAST YORKS: A garden has been dedicated to the memory of the former chairman of a hospital liaison group.
Frank Gray chaired the Local Community Liaison Group for the East Riding Community Hospital until his death last year.
At a dedication ceremony, tributes were paid to Frank's expertise and his championing of the community hospital scheme within the Beverley community by the former NHS East Riding of Yorkshire Hospital project team.
Frank's wife Pat said: "Frank had the vision for a Quiet Garden at the Minster offices, so the suggestion by the Hospital Liaison Group to allow a garden area in his memory is very apt.
"There is little to see just now, but we can look forward to the year-round pleasure for patients, visitors and staff, from the Garyaliptica shrubs with their silver tassels, to daffodils, spring cyclamen, Wisteria, clematis and honeysuckle, roses and then autumn cyclamen."
The formal dedication of the garden was carried out by Hospital Chaplain, Reverend John Beynon.
EAST YORKS: Motorists are being warned to expect delays when essential road works near the Humber Bridge get under way next month.
Scheduled to start on Monday, January 14, the works will involve lane closures for ten weeks near the site of a new £100m business park being constructed on a site close to the Humberfield roundabout in Hessle.
Ivan Hinchliffe, planning manager for developers Wykeland, said: "The work is part of the main infrastructure needed to access the site.
"It includes the construction of the main access road from Boothferry Road and the installation of a pelican crossing."
The business park is expected to create up to 3,000 jobs when completed.
HULL: A city councillor says he has "no regrets" over rejecting a developer's proposals to transform a site in the old Fruit Market.
Simon Dixon, chief executive of North Newbald-based firm Ispace, recently told the Mail how he regarded Councillor Steven Bayes as the rudest man he had ever met.
But the portfolio holder for regeneration told a full council meeting that Mr Dixon's proposals for a site near Hull Marina were a non-starter.
"We are very much open to business with developers but that has got to be a two-way relationship," he said.
"However, we are not in the business of doing one-off deals which would have made regenerating the Fruit Market area much harder."
