Plans for the £2.4 million restoration of Sewerby Hall will be presented at a meeting of the Bridlington Town Team next week.

Residents and businesses have been invited to Bridlington Town Hall on Wednesday August 1, at 6.30pm, to hear about the restoration project, which is aiming to give visitors a taste of life in a country house during Victorian times. The scheme will see the recreation of the servant’s wing including a fully-working kitchen and smart house keepers’ room while history will be brought to life through hands-on exhibits, such as period cooking demonstrations and a Victorian Christmas.

Town team members will also see plans for the new welcome centre, which will include an educational suite, and recreate some of the Greame family’s living rooms.

The principle architect involved will also give town team members a behind-the-scenes glimpse of how and when the work will be carried out.

The town team is an open group and welcomes people who live or work in Bridlington and are interested in helping to secure a bright future for the area.

The town team meets every two months and is a friendly forum where local people get a chance to find out about and influence the town’s regeneration.
