HM the Queen will hear about the work of the Hull School of Architecture when she visits the city next month.


She is due to meet Bridget Hansford, a senior lecturer at the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside, when she visits Noddle Hill Youth Centre in Bransholme on Friday 4th June.


Architecture students following a landscape design option at the university spent six months working with pupils and staff at Cleeve Primary School in Bransholme to plan and design a new playground and outdoor classroom for the school.


Pupils and students presented the designs earlier this month to members of the city council’s planning committee, and some of them will be at Bransholme next month to meet the royal visitor.


Bridget, student Susan Lavery, teacher Gena Spencer and pupils Richard Bailey and Carrie Waslin will all meet the Queen at around 2pm during her royal visit, which is in honour of the city’s 700th charter anniversary celebrations.


“Meeting the Queen will be a great honour for the students and for me,” said Bridget. “It will also give us a chance to show off the work which doing to help the community, which we’re immensely proud of.”
