STAND is committed to maintain the legacy of the once successful fishing industry and the community that served it.

As an industry and workforce which over a hundred years lost more than six thousand men, many of whom were only boys. We believe the sacrifice these people made must be forever remembered and respected.

In 2003 our group, with generous donation from the general public, commissioned the Memorial to Lost Trawlermen Books. This venture created a pictorial register of the great loss of life the fishing fleet suffered through this period of Hull’s industrial history.

Currently STAND has a much greater challenge, to deliver a memorial tribute within a garden of remembrance on the site of the what was once the hub of the Hull fishing industry on St. Andrews Dock, the old fish dock.
