RESIDENTS have been invited to put their snowman building skills to the test at a competition being run at Sewerby Hall and Gardens.

The build-a-snowman competition runs until the end of February and the prizes to be won are season passes for the year 2013-14.

Councillor Richard Burton, cabinet portfolio holder for civic wellbeing and culture, said: “Snow is always enjoyed by children and this build-a-snowman competition is a brilliant way to keep them entertained.

“Fun times can be had by the whole family and Sewerby Hall and Gardens remains open for business during the winter periods, providing plenty of activities and stunning scenery all year round.”

To enter into the competition go to the grounds when it has snowed and build a great snowman around any part of the estate and then take a picture of it.

All entries must be created and photographed within the Sewerby Hall and Gardens’ estate.

You can collect an entry form and list of rules from the estate office or download them from our website.

Marie Gascoigne, facility manager at Sewerby Hall and Gardens, said: “Thanks to the typical British weather, this year’s snowfall has its advantages as there is lots of fresh snow in the Gardens to build with.

“Print out a picture of your snowman and hand it in at the estate office with a completed competition entry form. If you are unlucky enough not to win a season pass you could always buy one instead or request one as a present”.

Please note that some of the entries may be used in publicity.
