Many years ago, Mike and I discovered that we had both been in Hull in 1980, Mike at the School of Architecture and me doing my final social work placement on the (then notorious) Bransholme Estate. Our paths didn’t cross at that time but it is a city which played an important part in each of our lives. Yesterday there was a reunion for alumni of Hull HSA between the late 1970s and early 1980s, an opportunity to wander down memory lane not to be missed.
