Bellway Homes has launched an appeal to find the longest serving staff at Princess Royal Hospital, Hull.
The national homebuilder is currently redeveloping the site of the former hospital and wants to mark the link between the past and the future by getting those who worked there the longest to officially open the stunning new show home on Princess Royal Park on Saturday 9th November.
Melanie Smith, Bellway Yorkshire’s sales manager, said: “While we are building towards a new chapter for the Salthouse Road site, it’s important to pay tribute to its long and proud history – and we feel the best way of doing that is looking for those who have a long and proud association with the hospital.”
Bellway is also encouraging anyone with old photographs of the site, whether during its years as a working hospital, following its closure in 2008 or even before the hospital was built, to get in touch.
“A photo exhibition of the site during its different stages is something we’d love to put together and display on-site throughout the course of construction” added Melanie.
“It would certainly be a point of great interest for everyone who visits.”
Those wishing to get in touch concerning either element of the appeal should contact Melanie Smith at Bellway Yorkshire’s HQ on 01937 583533.
Bellway’s Princess Royal Park development is breathing new life back into the 17-acre site that has remained unused since the closure of the Princess Royal Hospital in 2008. The 103 homes, which will be bordered by meadowland to the east and established residential areas to the north, will sit within landscaped areas that feature mature trees, and are being built to a traditional design and elevation.
“It really does have everything a new site could offer – great houses, a great location, excellent amenities, including a golf course, on the doorstep, and easy access to the city centre,” continued Melanie.
Princess Royal Park is Bellway’s first development in Hull for close to a decade. The Wetherby-based company first made its name in the city when it redeveloped Victoria Dock during the late 1980s and 90s and later Sutton Links.
