Support for Ukraine

All Hessle Town Councillors and staff are deeply saddened by the act of senseless and unwarranted war being waged by Russia upon Ukraine.

We condemn such horrendous acts of war and call for all hostilities and blood shed to cease immediately and for the withdrawal of all invading forces from Ukraine. As a Town Council we will support those who need it most at such a distressing time. We are supporting Ukraine and are prepared to offer all the support we can within our current powers, including helping those who may have to leave their home country in order to find safety in our area. Our collective thoughts and prayers are with the people of Ukraine as they fight through this difficult and unbearable time.

How can I offer support to the people of Ukraine?

The Charity Commission and Fundraising Regulator have urged the public to ‘give safely’ to registered charities as people make generous donations to causes helping to support and protect people affected by the invasion of Ukraine.

As the conflict and ensuing humanitarian situation in Ukraine continues to escalate, it is vital that charitable donations of goods and money reach their intended causes. UK charities are pivotal to a collective response to this crisis.

Hessle Town Council are in contact with the LGA (Local Government Association), County Associations, our local MP, the East Riding of Yorkshire and Hull City councils to help provide local support.  For further information on help, how to donate safely and answers to frequently asked questions please click on the following link which will take you to the East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s dedicated page:


Led by Hessle Town Councillors and local volunteers, a group is currently in the process of being created for Hessle based residents who have signed up to the Governments Homes for Ukraine Scheme to connect and support Ukrainian families and their Hessle hosts.  For anyone wanting to link up with others on the scheme, please contact the Town Hall Office on: 01482 648566 and we will provide contact details of the local co-ordinator.


The Ridings Medical Group

Please note the impending merger of the following GP practices which encompasses patients within Hessle and the surrounding areas:

The Ridings Medical Group
Peeler House Surgery
Hessle Grange Medical Practice

All patients will become part of a single practice group which will be known as The Ridings Medical Group.

Please click on the links below to see a copy of the letter sent to patients and frequently asked questions which provide more detailed information:

Patient and Stakeholder Letter – Hessle practices

Patient FAQ – Hessle practices

The East Riding of Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group and NHS England & Improvement fully support this direction of travel as it will help to secure the future of primary care in Hessle and the wider Haltemprice locality.  The mergers are expected to improve access to primary care for patients and drive forward integrated working at a neighbourhood level with other health providers, the voluntary sector and social care.  This also futureproofs the ability for patients to register at the new practice with capacity to absorb any future increase in population.

This information is being shared with patients, along with details of how they can provide their feedback and ask any questions to help with the smooth transfer.  The practices will continue to provide detailed information to patients as the merger of the three practices progresses.
