Neil, David and Hilary regularly campaign on local issues brought to our attention by residents. One such is traffic problems along Lang Avenue and Ingleborough Avenue in the east of Tang Hall.

Too much on-street parking has caused problems at the Tang Hall Lane end of Lang Avenue. So, we went out door-knocking along the street to find out what residents thought –  and what solutions they might welcome. We spoke to a good number of people, leaving a letter for those we couldn’t talk to. Further letters, emails and telephone calls have come in from residents following our visits.

We’ll use this consultation to build a report for council officers that gives a true picture of the issues – and what solutions residents would welcome.

If you’d like us to undertake similar activity and consult on issues in your street within Hull Road ward, please do get in touch.

You only have until the 20th April to register, so go to www.gov.uk/register-to-vote now, or if you need help, contact City of York Council.

The Hull Road Labour team and local volunteers were out on Saturday encouraging residents to check they are registered to vote.

The complete Labour team of local candidates and parliamentary candidate were joined by retiring York Central MP, Sir Hugh Bayley for an evening door-knocking session in the heart of Tang Hall.

Labour's York Central parliamentary candidate Rachael Maskell and Hull Road ward candidates Neil Barnes, Hilary Shepherd and David Levene were overwhelmed by the fantastic support for Labour in the area.

Issues raised included the rising cost of living, housing and the future of the NHS. Residents were pleased to be able to wish Sir Hugh all the best for the future and to welcome Rachael and the local election candidates. Several 'Vote Labour' posters will be on their way to the area.

The Hull Road Labour candidates - Neil Barnes, David Levene and Hilary Shepherd - had an excellent Monday evening door-knocking session. They spoke to a number of local residents about issues including rubbish collections and recycling.

Despite the wet weather threatening to curtail the activity, the team held firm and were rewarded with meeting many people who intend to vote Labour on May 7th. Residents also described how they were pleased with the work of local Labour councillors over the past few years - so all-in-all, a very satisfying evening!

On Saturday 28th March, your Hull Road Labour candidates, Neil Barnes, David Levene and Hilary Shepherd, joined local residents and members of the Badger Hill Residents Community Group for a litter pick across the estate.

This was as part of the City of York Council's annual Smarter York Big Clean.

Neil, David and Hilary had a good time out with local volunteers and Neil eventually took six full bags of litter to the James Street household waste centre - a great result!

The Badger Hill Residents Community Group are an apolitical organisation who have been very active across the estate over many years. They've been an immensely useful local resource for Hull Road councillors, providing great insight into local issue.

Hull Road's Labour candidates Neil Barnes, Hilary Shepherd and David Levene were 'touring' the ward on Sunday afternoon, talking with many residents before finishing up at the Black Bull - where we know many residents like to have a nice Sunday lunch. On this Sunday, it was good to see it particularly busy for Mother's Day!

The team have been dealing with a number of concerns in recent weeks - particularly around letting boards, planning issues and litter on streets. The team are supporting the council's current 'Smarter York' campaign and you may see them on the streets with bin bag in hand!
