Children view Ings from the air

Children view Ings from the air

The end of term was extra-special for children at three primary schools in Hull when a drone visited to capture images from the air.

Organised as part of Newground’s ReachOut project, the drone visited Ings, Neasden and Bellfield primary schools which serve the Ings estate.


The drone shots, combined with video recorded in other projects, will be presented in December as part of a wider programme made by local young people telling the story of the Ings estate. 

This self-generated media project is just one of many exciting activities Newground’s ReachOut Team is delivering for young people on Ings to mark Hull’s year as City of Culture. 

The Ings estate is undergoing major regeneration work led by Together Housing and Compendium Living, creating new high-quality affordable homes.

Katie Bower, senior project officer for Newground, said: “We are trying to gather some digital imagery of the estate during this year of City of Culture so we can capture what it was like this year.

“This is an element that we couldn’t get the young people to do themselves, but they are capturing imagery and videos from January through to December which at the end of the year we will have a project and an outcome.

“We will have something the young people can upload onto YouTube and see for themselves and keep referring back to as a memory.”
