European cash hope for Hull's community wardens
Hull's community warden service is set to be revamped, despite facing a £500,000 funding cut.
Council funding for the service run by the Goodwin Development Trust is being reduced as part of the authority's cost-cutting budget measures for the coming year.
However, city council deputy leader Councillor Daren Hale said officials from the trust and the council were optimistic about securing European funding as an alternative.
Speaking at a council scrutiny meeting, he said: "There is potential for European Regional Development Fund money coming in from a bid which has been submitted and we are very hopeful it will be successful.

"The intention would be revert the focus of the service back to supporting elderly and vulnerable people as it did initially."
The council's contract for the wards was recently extended until the end of March.
Cllr Hale said: "There will still be community wardens in every area of the city if not in every ward."
