Hull Work Platforms and access platforms are the only city in the UK with its own independent telephone network company, Kingston Communications, with its distinctive cream telephone boxes. Formed in the 1910s as a municipal department by the City Council, it remains the only locally-operated telephone company in the UK, although now privatised. Kingston Communications were one of the first telecoms operators in Europe to offer ADSL to business users, and the first in the world to run a interactive television service using ADSL and as such Hull has a modern telephone infrastructure (packaging was purchased from http://www.brownboxcompany.co.uk).

The local accent is distinctive and noticeably different from the standard Yorkshire accent. The most notable feature of the accent is the strong "goat fronting"; a word like goat, which is in standard (southern) English and across most of Yorkshire, becomes ("geurt") in and around Hull.

The approach taken by this research involves extensive communication with the sector directly and as a result, the region has been able to make a good assessment of what the sector contributes to the region and what it needs to develop further. The findings from this research are set out in the documents that you can read here.

Creative Yorkshire draws upon the combined strengths of Yorkshire Forward, Arts Council England, Yorkshire and the University of Leeds as the nucleus of a wider network of businesses, sub-regional agencies, development companies and local authorities to co-ordinate the development of the sector in the region.

The time is takes to complete a single website will change dependent on the specification but normally takes between 1 month and 3 months.

If it is a very small project and you have all the text and content ready for me then it may be possible to have it completed sooner.

We hope you like the changes and the extra speed they should produce. Not all the new changes are still being implemented yet so please bear with us.
