Goole had another reason to celebrate at the annual general meeting. The society took third place in the Regional Civic Society of the Year Award for its blue plaque event and film screening to commemorate the Goole-born 1920s-30s film star Dorothy Bartlam. More than 80 people attended the screening at Junction, which was supported by a Do It For East Yorkshire community grant.
Mrs Hicks-Clarke added: “We welcome anyone to come and join us in Goole. We are currently working on a new blue plaque and plans to celebrate Goole’s 200th anniversary in 2026. We also have a seat on the Goole Town Deal Board, advising on heritage.”
