Lost trawler boats

Throughout July and August, The Fishermen’s Mission will be showcasing a poignant and educational exhibition to remember and celebrate Hull’s Fishing Heritage.

It has involved many people from the community, including school children.

A thought provoking Net of Remembrance will be displayed; photos and artefacts will recall a life in fishing; themes will be explored such as:

  • Hull’s trawler losses
  • trawlers at war
  • memories of our fishermen
  • the women who campaigned for safety at sea
  • the 3 Day Millionaires
  • the Herring Girls
  • Net braiders and bobbers
  • the work of The Fishermen’s Mission.

Come and remember Hull’s fishing industry and the fishermen who worked hard and risked their lives to put fish on our tables.

The lovely Trinity Café will be open for refreshments including homemade cakes, biscuits and soup.
