New EastRider X7 bus service from January 2021

The EastRider X7 will start at Withernsea and call at Hollym, Patrington, Ottringham, Keyingham, Thorngumbald and Hedon before running straight down Hedon Road into Hull City Centre, shaving around ten minutes from the current journey time. Rolled out during January 2021, the new buses will have extra comfortable seats, WiFi and USB chargers.

Ted Winkler 1920 – 2020

This is published on what would have been Ted Winkler’s 100th birthday 4 December. Sadly Ted died two weeks ago. This is written in tribute to a man who was fascinated by the local history of his adopted Hedon home, but who himself had a fascinating life story.
