Artists are invited to submit designs for a piece of artwork to commemorate Hull’s lost trawlermen.

Several entries will be chosen to go on show at the Maritime Museum before going to a public vote.

The winner will be announced in January and the design will go on display in the Lost Trawlermen’s memorial garden on St Andrews Dock.

Ron Wilkinson, Chairman of STAND, says: “This memorial will provide a fitting tribute to the thousands of lives lost in the fishing industry.”

Councillor Stephen Brady, Leader of Hull City Council, says: “This is a significant milestone for STAND to have reached and we hope that we can now press ahead with this honourable scheme, which pays tribute to the lost trawlermen of this city.

“We have strong links with the fishing industry and this will provide a fantastic space for members of the public to reflect on Hull’s maritime heritage whilst educating future generations on the importance of this location.”
