We’re trying to encourage the transformation of a piece of land, once plagued by anti-social behaviour and dereliction into something wonderful, that will help (I firmly believe) transform people’s lives.

The belief comes from experience of the garden at Western Library on the Boulevard in Hull. Similar story; a derelict piece of land, anti-social behaviour, people had had enough! A constituted community group was formed of local resident...s, parents, volunteers…they applied for funding and now the garden is thriving…and even has a cob oven for baking and pizza…and much more, as you can see from the Friends Of Western Library Facebook page here;

I know we can replicate this at Greenwood Avenue Library, because the case is strong. It would be a shame to miss the opportunity to enliven a library and make it more magical for children and families and indeed the whole community.

We have an informal drop-in event on Friday 6th April, 2-4pm at Greenwood Avenue Library, 220 Greenwood Avenue, Hull HU6 9RU.

We’d be very grateful if you could spread the word to parents, families anyone in the community who may be interested.

Thank you, and best wishes!

The website-How are you feeling- is a mental health and wellbeing site that has been co-designed with young people from Hull on behalf of the NHS Hull CCG.

The aim of the site is to help children, young people and their families to understand emotional and mental health issues, to promote self-help tips and techniques, and to help to make the ‘system’ easier to navigate within local services.

The main target audience is children and young people. However, information will also be targeted at families and professionals. The website is the ‘go to’ site for all information relevant to emotional well-being and mental health for Hull.

We aim to ensure that we have up to date information about local services and national websites for children and young people on all emotional and mental health issues. To have guidance on self-care and signposting to local services.

If you want to find out more about why this website has been built you can access the Children and young people’s transformational plan here.

Young people have been involved at every step of its design and build of this website, some have been part of focus groups helping develop the name and look of the site, others have checked the content as it has been developed and more groups critiqued the final site before it went live.

We take this process seriously and hope that it means we have developed the site you want to see. If you want to contribute to the site or give your feedback please do, any messages sent through will be replied to as soon as possible.
